The girls tennis team has started off their league season with a victory over Mills High School, providing the team with confidence.
Outside of matches, the team focuses on the importance of team chemistry.
“Our chemistry is good,” coach Bill Smith said. “We have many seniors contributing to the team, from the daily cheer to practice itself, so everyone wants to play more.”
Senior Nicole Malik echoes this notion.
“The team is cool because we have skilled players in addition to beginners, and we can cater to both types of players,” Malik said. “Even as a beginner, they have a chance to get better and play against players who are a higher level than them.”
“Coach is helpful, and the group is great,” freshman Elisabeth Weimar, who is excited to be on the team, said, “especially the upperclassmen who are very motivating.”
Due to the strong confidence in the team, exhibited by individual skills during matches and exemplary teamwork during practice, the team has set their aims high.
“We have our league playoffs marked in the schedule,” Coach Smith said, confident in the team playing to that caliber.
