This season of girls tennis is wrapping up with some successes. Despite being moved to the bigger, better Eastern League, the girls held their own. On Senior Night against Madison, the team pulled off a win in tie breakers. Both of our top singles players, Addy Barajas and Lauren Mansey finished the season off with strong records. Number One Doubles, Carsyn Arvan and Shannon McMahon, ended the season with a couple of sweeps against strong teams such as University City.
Senior Night was a rousing success against Madison High School. The three seniors honored were Carsyn Arvan, Maddie Fossler, and Shannon McMahon. As well as a team victory, each senior won individual sets as well. A bittersweet last home match, the night ended with each girl receiving flowers as well as baked goods and a note from underclassmen.
Entering the league tournament, singles player Mansy is ranked eighth overall and doubles team Arvan and McMahon are ranked ninth overall; however, all players will be competing in the tournament. Each match is best two out of three with a third set ten point super tiebreaker if necessary. In the league tournament players will have to win four matches in a single elimination tournament to qualify for the CIF tournament.
With the move to the new league, this season was a transition season. Despite this, many individuals found lots of success and development as players. With many new additions to the team this year, both players and Assistant Coach Katie Paren, the team hopes to be a contender in future years.
