Preview: Varsity and junior varsity girls’ tennis against St. Lucy’s
For the first time since 2012, varsity and junior varsity girlsâ€™ tennis will take on St. Lucyâ€™s on Thursday, Sept. 17 at home. The last time the Mustangs played the Regents, varsity won, 11-7 and junior varsity lost, 8-10.
Coming off of a 10-8 and 12-6 win against Alta Loma, varsity and junior varsity girlsâ€™ tennis hope to keep their winning streaks alive. However, with no recent playing experience against St. Lucyâ€™s, the Mustangs are going into the game without knowing the Regentsâ€™ skill or play style. To prepare, girlsâ€™ tennis has worked on its usual routines of volleying, practice matches and rallying.
â€śItâ€™s our first time we play them [St. Lucyâ€™s] this year, so we really donâ€™t know much about them,â€ť varsity singles player junior Brittany Chiu said. â€śWe are confident in playing them, even though itâ€™s our first time. We just need to stay calm during the game and donâ€™t let nerves get over us.â€ť
