HEB Sports Hall of Fame Inductee 2012


1976 L.D. Bell Tennis Team

In 1976, Bell High School was in district 5-4A, the top classification in Texas at that time. The 5A classification did not exist until later years. The 1976 Bell Tennis Team had 25 team members, 13 boys and 12 girls. They won 10 of 12 dual matches, the “Metro League”, and closed out the season winning district and advancing in the state playoffs. As a result of an outstanding season, they were ranked in the Top Ten. This was a well earned honor in Texas Tennis Team Championships. The 1976 L. D. Bell Blue Raider Tennis Team is the first tennis team to be inducted into the Hurst-Euless- Bedford Sports Hall of Fame. The team was coached by Texas Sports Hall of Fame Inductee, Moses Ruiz.
