I am super proud of the effort, and enthusiasm these athletes, and our entire team are putting forth! They are becoming more confident in their serving, groundstrokes, & net play with each match.

Our JV players are getting time on the court during each Varsity match, & it is beginning to show. They are gaining experience, playing in doubles situations; while sharpening the newly acquired skills they have learned. I am so excited to see their continued improvement as the season progresses!
