"Tennis is as much a physical sport as it is a mental sport. With that in mind, playing tennis has taught me the importance of mental toughness," said Awsare.

For most seniors, the end of the school years marks the bittersweet closing of one chapter and the exciting beginning of another. This is especially true for student athletes as they finish out the end of their final seasons on high school sports teams.

On the boys tennis team, three seniors, Mitchell Chang, Chris Hong, and Sohun Awsare, will be saying goodbye to their fellow teammates after the end of this season.

After several years on the team, all three players have had experiences that will make their high school tennis season memorable for years to come.

Awsare said, “Honestly, I will remember the camaraderie among the players, and how we played for each other.”

Hong will remember “having a huge comeback when we were losing against San Mateo High School. Most of us lost the first set, but we worked hard to win the games back.”

High school sports add another layer to the high school experience, and are a great way to make new friends and lasting memories.

Although tennis is mainly an individual sport, the Carlmont boys tennis team has managed to create an environment that is just as, if not more, supportive as is found in team sports.

Chang, who plans to go to San Jose State University, said, “I won’t be playing tennis in college, but I learned that having team spirit is very important.”

“Tennis is as much a physical sport as it is a mental sport. With that in mind, playing tennis has taught me the importance of mental toughness,” said Awsare. “The game may not always go your way, but the ability to bounce back is of paramount importance in order to have success on the court.”

Similarly, Hong said, “In high school tennis, mental toughness is the main factor that determines the game and is the key to wining, In doubles tennis, communication is extremely important.”

Whether or not these seniors decide to play tennis in college and beyond, they have all learned lessons that have helped them grow, not only as players, but as people.
