The girl’s head coach, Rob Moore, talked about the team and many of its up-and-coming players. Having graduated six varsity players from last year’s team, he said that this season will “certainly test this year’s young team,” including freshmen Maya Antes, Hana Granillo, Aldara Krantzberg, and Amanda Ursitti, along with two rising JV players Lauren McBride and Bri Lehr. Some of the top athletes on the team include two-time lettermen Madison Smith and Keala Hallerberg, last year’s all-CIF doubles players Elena Wang and her partner, two-time lettermen Emily Dow.

The team already has two impressive wins under its belt against Granite Hills (17-1) and Hilltop (13-5). Despite a tough loss against the always formidable Bishop’s High School last Thursday, Coach Moore is confident that this year will be a great one: “This is a very talented team with tremendous potential and I’m looking forward to seeing them progress throughout the season.”

This week’s game against Francis Parker promises to be a tough one. Make sure to stop by the tennis courts to see the match – there is always plenty of bleachers and shade.
