Girls’ tennis falls in Round of 16 CIF playoffs

By Camille Shooshani

The varsity tennis doubles team of Kristina Park ’13 and Taylor Coon ’12 lost to Thousand Oaks Thursday, ending both matches 6-1. The girls are the fourth doubles team in Harvard-Westlake history to get to the Round of 16 CIF playoffs.

“We weren’t really that sad when lost,” Coon said. “I made it this far last year with Kei [Goldberg ’12] so getting here was my goal and I did it with Kristina.”

Park and Coon advanced Wednesday after beating St. Bonaventure’s 6-2 and 6-0.

Wednesday, singles player Savannah de Montesquieu lost in the Round of 32 to a singles player from North J.W. High School 5-7 and 6-7.

These individual playoffs are separate from team playoffs. The team lost in the CIF quarterfinals Nov. 15 to Peninsula High School.
