Sydney Cho warms up before playing against Burlingame.

Carlmont beat Burlingame High School, last year’s Peninsula Athletic League champions, winning 4-3 in total matches.

“It was our first real challenge playing powerful hitters. It looked tight at first, but the girls brought their game up and adjusted to meet the challenge,” stated head coach Amina Halsey about the performance of the team.

Pareesa Darafshi and partner Mar Burgueno, Carlmont’s number one ranked doubles on the team, won against Burlingame with a score of 6-4 and 6-3.

“I thought we played well and we played better than we did against Burlingame last year. We made adjustments such as being more aggressive at the net and that helped us,” commented Darafsh about the game.

According to Darafshi, Burlingame was tougher competition than the other teams they’ve played against so far this season.

Last year, Carlmont placed third in the PAL. Halsey said that this year, the team is hoping to take first in the league and to make it to the Central Coast Section playoffs.

With their current record 5-o, Carlmont girls tennis is off to a positive start and has a chance to reach their goals for this year.
