Girls tennis fall sports updates


Genna Bishop, Assistant Buisness Manager

The girls tennis team is starting off the season strong. Even with fewer players this year, the team’s spirit is still high. The team hopes to work on mastering fundamentals skills and connecting more challenging techniques. They are also hoping for some new faces because they are always looking to bring more people onto the team.

Junior Anna Deka encourages people to join.“It’s tiring and it’s a time commitment, but it also teaches you time management,” she said. “I feel like tennis really helped me grow as a student and as a person. Doing any sport really takes a lot out of you, but once you get into a routine, it’s really not that bad!”

The team had their first match against Los Altos on Sept. 3. After a strong effort, the varsity team lost 2-5 and JV lost 1-6. “The girls teams are tough because we play in a very, very strong league,” head coach Jim Gorman said. “We have a very strong team,and we’d be first or second in almost any other league. We have some great players andthey have a lot of fun. They improve a lot, so it’s really great.”

Gorman loves the sport, and is looking for new people to join the team. “We always need more girls on the team,” he said. “So get your rackets up, practice more and come out and join us!”
