This year, the girls’ tennis varsity team moves up a league in their division. Senior Kelly Poon hopes that the team will continue to do well this year. “[It] would be nice to get in some wins for this season,” Poon said.

Varsity coach Jim Gordon echoes Poon’s outlook on this season. “We’re in one of the toughest leagues in the nation,” Gordon said. “We’ll either place really high or really low [in the league]. All matches will be really tough. Our hardest match last year will be our easiest match this year.” Despite the challenges that face the teams, however, having each others’ company keeps the team’s spirits high.
