2016 is a new year for the Scots, and the boys varsity tennis team is hopeful for a successful season.
In the first scrimmage before the official season, the Carlmont Scots earned a 6-1 victory over the Serra Padres.
“I had a slow start, but as the match went on, I started playing a lot better. I’m happy that I was able to pull through in the end,” said senior Kevin Hutchaleelaha, who plays second singles. He won his match with a score of 8-6.
Although six of the seven games ended in victories, sophomore Nate Yeo lost his third singles match.
He said, “I could have played a little better today. I felt a lot of pressure because this is the first game, but I hope I can improve for the next game.”
After the game ended, there was a positive vibe running throughout the players as well as the coach.
“I thought they played really well. It was nice to see them out on the courts playing a different opponent, because they’ve only been playing each other at practice so far. I hope that this win carries on into the next matches and we can keep the win streak going,” said Coach Dan Nguyen, who is a math teacher at Carlmont.
When the season officially starts on March 11, the boys varsity tennis team will be ready to play.
