Tennis - Girls Varsity
More important than the wins is the approach the team develops in practice and then takes into matches. With an emphasis on the rewards of hard work, mental strength and sportsmanship, the individuals of the team support one another in bringing the most focused possible approach on court. The bonds of teamwork extend off the court as well and the players enjoy one another’s company to the fullest, especially during trips to away matches which are always laughter filled.
Prior to the season, the team travels to Boca Raton, Florida for a week of training and scrimmages as well as a trip to Key Biscayne to watch the world’s top pros in action.
