Girls’ Tennis Continues Dominance
October 14, 2012
The girls’ tennis team continued its dominance this week, defeating Aragon and Mills to improve to a 10-2 record overall, 10-1 league.
The team faced Aragon on Tuesday and dispatched them 6-1. Of note was the addition of Maria Londono Tobon who recently moved to the Bay Area from Florida to the singles line up, playing number 3 singles for the first time.
Coach Tom Sorenson said the victory was the, “best win of the season” and he, “[hasn’t] seen the girls’ so singularly focused on their own games and their own performances as much as at Aragon.”
On Thursday the team faced Mills and routed them 7-0, although they made lineup changes prior to the match. Having beaten Mills handily in the first half of the season, Sorenson, “wanted to give a number of girls a chance to play singles and also to give three non-starting lineup doubles team a chance to play in the starting lineup.” Sorenson felt, “it was huge success, they enjoyed and profited from their experience.”
Looking to the match against Carlmont next week, the only league opponent M-A has lost to this season, Sorenson is hopeful, saying of the singular focus he saw during the match against Aragon, “That’s what were striving for, we’re striving to take care of what we can do and not worry about our opponents nearly as much.”
The team will face Carlmont and Burlingame next week.
