The girls tennis team took a decisive victory over Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy on Thursday, putting their overall record at 6-1 and their league record at 4-1. The squad continued their momentum from a 16-2 win against Chaminade College Preparatory High School March 25 and won with a score of 18-0. 

Singles and doubles player Zoe Shin ’23 said she was pleased with the game’s outcome, as it was one of the team’s most dominant performances of the season.

“I think the team has been growing closer and building great bonds that illustrate themselves on the court,” Shin said. “And I believe we collectively started off strong and carried that through to the end.”

When it comes to improvements for future games, Shin feels the team needs minimal work. 

“Everyone has the skill and the technique; all that we can do is build more confidence in ourselves,” Shin said.

Like Shin, Sam Plageman ’23 said that they were able to start strong, setting the tone for the rest of the match.

“Winning is contagious; once we started to win a few of the matches, we didn’t let up,” Plageman said. “We were strong in all our matches, both singles and doubles, and we are comfortable playing at whatever position our coach asks.”

Plageman also offered insight into what the team is focusing on for the remainder of their games.

“We’ve been working on game strategies and consistency so that we can finish strong for the rest of the season,” Plageman said. 

The Wolverines will next play Chaminade on April 22, a rematch where they’ll seek to repeat their prior success.
