Girls Tennis Update


[media-credit id=55 align=”alignnone” width=”300″][/media-credit]The Lady Scots tennis team was soundly beaten on our home turf on Oct. 18 in a rematch with the aggressive Burlingame Panthers. They rebounded on Thursday, Oct. 20 in a win against the Menlo-Atherton Bears at M-A.

The final score against Burlingame was Panthers 7, Scots 0. With this win, Burlingame once again took the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division tennis title, which they also won last year.

Carlmont’s loss Tuesday took it out of the running for Bay Division title. The score against M-A on Thursday was Scots 4, Bears 3, bringing the Lady Scots’ win-loss record to 9-4 for the 2011 season.

Tennis coach Amina Doar said the Lady Scots’ biggest strength is its depth. “We have a lot of strong, competitive players, and our lineup features a lot of talented ladies.” When asked about areas where the team is looking to improve, she said, “Our team needs to work on strengthening our doubles movement and strategy.  We have really focused this season on doubles, and the team has made great improvements!  I’m really proud of them.”

Week in and week out the Lady Scots have fought hard on the courts and had fun in the process, with the support of their classmates, parents, and fans.
