    Girl’s tennis supporters were on the edges of their seats as the players intensely served the  fluorescent bouncy ball from one side of the scorching courts. This match would determine if they make it to the second round of CIF.

     The girl’s tennis team played in the first round of CIF at the Peninsula Tennis Center on Oct. 23, 2018. Seven girls played doubles and three singles while two doubles teams played against players in the eastern league. The match on Oct. 23, 2018 resulted to a score of 8-10, the loss ended the girls tennis season.

     Making it to CIF wasn’t a surprise to the team at all, but they knew it would take a lot of hard work and practice with the move to a more skilled team.

     “We prepared by practicing strategic thinking and plays,” said senior Charyna Delos Santos.

     The group of girls vigorously trained for months during the summer to prepare every players skills individually to be successful in CIF.

     “We had to practice harder and play smarter to be up to the CIF level,” explains senior and third year tennis player Holly Phan.

     “Knowing the team had the ability to make it onto the next round would have been ideal. However, the journey getting to CIF was definitely exciting,” concluded Phan.

     It wasn’t a surprise that the girls tennis team has made it to CIF, through their hard work and dedication they have made it to CIF for the past three years.
