Girls Tennis Team Serves up a Spectacular Start to the Season

Having several productiunnamed-2ve practices and winning the first match of the league, the girls tennis team is off to a great start this season. With a large team of twenty­six players, there is a lot of talent to go around. The team consists of ten freshmen, ten sophomores, five juniors and one senior. Meeting every Monday and Wednesday for practice with two games a week, they are getting lots of practice and are improving everyday.

The players are feeling supported and confident. The freshmen especially feel very welcomed as baby bearcats and the future of the team. Highest rank singles player, freshman Aida Lowe says, ”I think that the whole team has really made an effort on being there for one another as a whole and encouraging one another to do better as a player.” They are already starting to see improvement as well. Maggie Dong, s sophomore, said, ”We worked really hard and everyone’s improved so much and everyone is bonding well together.”

However, Captain Lindsey Pantuso and Co­Captains Ginny Yao and Michelle Kwon are
starting to feel the pressures of being the leaders of the team. Junior and Co­Captain Michelle Kwon
said, ”The hardest challenge is balancing everything, from tennis to school to extracurriculars and staying committed.” This season being her first experience of being a Co­Captain, Michelle is adjusting whereas Captain Lindsey, a senior, has got the hang of things.”Well, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be! My tennis team has been amazingly supportive and always come on the court with positive attitudes.”

The captains are trying their best to keep the team motivated, enthusiastic, and together as the coach is trying to keep the captains in check. “I am trying to keep the captains as well as keeping the

team motivated and positive and getting through the obstacles of homework and pressures of high school.” says Coach Ed Schuler.

Coach Schuler is confident that this season will be the best ever, ”All the girls are showing up to practice and are trying their best. We even beat Aragon six to one, which is something that this school hasn’t been able to do for about 12 years. ”As the mentor of the team, he hopes for success in the rest
of the season, ”My goals are to have every girl play to the best of their ability and to be as competitive as possible and keep as a unified team.” said Coach Schuler.

Winning all of their games and bonding well with each other, the team has high hopes. Although they still have the entire season ahead of them, the team is ready to take on any challenges that come their way.
