Assistant Arts & Entertainment Editor Mia Morgan ’25 and Sophia Bakhtiari ’25 celebrate during a doubles match.

The girls’ varsity tennis team defeated Notre Dame High School on Oct. 18, making them the 2023 Mission League champions. The Wolverines won 17-1 at Braemar Country Club, which moved the squad to an undefeated 8-0 league record. The team finished the regular season with an overall record of 11-3.

Girls Tennis Program Head Jelena Durisic said the team is looking forward to entering the playoffs with a positive attitude after the big win.

“The work we have been putting in is paying off, and we are excited for the upcoming CIF tournament,” Durisic said. “We know we have a challenging tournament ahead of us, but we will go in with focus and determination, and may the best team win.”

Varsity player Tanya Anand ’24 said though she is anticipating playing some challenging teams in the upcoming playoff games, the team’s skills have strengthened immensely throughout the season.

“Winning the Mission League was definitely a big achievement, and it was a first for many girls on the team,” Anand said. “It felt pretty great because I’ve seen us grow as a team and [as] players through pre-season, so being able to perform at such a level was wonderful. Going into playoffs, we are looking forward to being able to play some of the best teams in SoCal.”

The team’s first playoff game, the individual preliminary rounds, will take place Oct. 24 at Los Angeles Valley College.
