Girls Tennis Team player Savannah Cochran said, “I was in the region tournament, and I felt like our team played great.”

Katie Petersen plays 2nd Varsity Doubles. She responds on how she wants to improve her skills.

Petersen said, “Probably my round game and maybe signals.”

“As a team we are doing super well; we took region and went to state,” said Petersen.

Petersen commented on why she likes playing tennis, “I chose tennis because I quit soccer, and my dad had a lot of influence on me.  I just like playing tennis; it's not just a team sport, but also a personal sport as well.  I think it’s a lot of fun.”

Hana Miyasaki, who plays doubles on the JV Girls Tennis team, played in the JV tournament. Miyasaki is always improving her game.

“Tennis is a mental game, so just focusing on staying positive is what I would like to improve,” said Miyasaki.

Miyasaki commented that the team did very well this year, and she did much better this year than she did last year.

Miyasaki decided to play tennis because, “I didn’t have anything else to do at the time. I enjoy tennis because it’s fun and competitive,” said Miyasaki.
