Girls tennis swept through its third game of the regular season, crushing the Monrovia Wildcats, 16-2 Tuesday, Oct. 8. Almost halfway through the year, the Tigers sit at a strong 2-1 record.

The singles squad conquered the court, partially due to the absence of Monrovia’s singles three, subsequently winning eight of nine sets. Singles one, junior captain Carissa Park, crushed her two opponents, 6-1 and 6-0. 

The doubles squad pulled through in blowout fashion, only losing one set to a tiebreaker. Doubles team one, senior Teryn Kum and junior Skylar Cornforth, trounced their opponents, winning all three sets 6-0. 

Doubles two, junior Kimberly Hsueh and sophomore Stephanie Li, kept up the strong play, winning all three sets 6-1, 6-0, and 6-0. 

Junior Meagan Chang and senior Bella Kan, doubles three, easily won their sets against the doubles two and three with scores of 6-2 and 6-0. Against Monrovia’s one, they pushed to a tiebreaker, but could not pull through, losing 7-4. 

The girls team hopes to continue its success on Thursday, Oct. 10, against the La Cañada Spartans.
