With two weeks left in the tennis season, the team has changed the focus and goals from winning at any cost to being a more cohesive squad.

“Going into the season we were focused on winning as many games as possible, but we soon realized that we needed to be more focused on each other and supporting one another as a team, ” said junior Maya Scrip.

The team is 2-4 this season.

“Despite our record, we judge success by improvements between matches, ” said coach Christy Cinti “Each of the players on the team has improved substantially over the course of the season.”

The team’s win over The Bay School of San Francisco was a turning point in the season. Players say they became rejuvenated and focused, whereas the rain and other personal activities previously distracted them.

“We had our first win Oct. 8th and it motivated the team dramatically to be ready to win the finals,” said junior Sophie De Lancie “We realize how important it is to be a team. We are excited for the semi-finals as well as the BCL team finals.”
