Extending her arm out to reach the ball, Cindy Vo, junior, attempts to return the ball down the line. “I’m most proud of just seeing my progress over time moving up–because in tennis, we play different lines and the better you get, the higher up you are,” Vo said. She improves her performance every season.

The tennis team finished their strongest season in the last few years. While they fell short of a spot in the playoffs, they were only off by one match against Cy Falls, finishing district in fifth place; they barely lost to the fourth-place team.

“We also have an extremely difficult district with Memorial High School, even winning the 6A State title,” Nathan Williams, tennis coach, said. “Nine student athletes are projected to make the cut for the district tennis teams.”

Immense growth marked the season as JV’s tennis players demonstrated solid teamwork. Sharing one goal and determined to keep improving, the varsity team will only keep going up into the Spring tennis season.

“For tennis, we usually go to finals, but it was just the little wins with our teammates that mattered, such as everyone cheering for one another even if we lost; it was just good sportsmanship,” Alissa Cornejo, senior, said.
