Miramonte Holds off Resilient Tennis

Emily Fong, Staff Writer

The girls’ varsity tennis team fell to Miramonte, in spite of a close match score of 5-4, on October 9th.

“They’re a very good team [Miramonte],” said co-coach Steve Robinson, “But I’m pleased with the results.”

“I’m proud of the way we played,” added junior Silvana Moiceanu. “We showed the Mats that Campo can compete.”

A win would have put the Cougars in contention for first place in the league, as both Miramonte and Campo would have had identical records of 7-1, according to sophomore Grace Roberts.

Campo is hoping to continue last year’s success, as the team finished that season in first place in DFAL and went on to play in the North Coast Section Championships.

Much of the team’s success can be attributed to their resilience. Three matches went into tie-breaker rounds. Freshman Hannah Ross also fought back to win her match, eventually earning a 14-12 victory after being down 5-7.

“We’re the underdogs, and we’ve learned a lot throughout the season,” said Roberts. “Hopefully we can come back to win.”

Currently, the team’s League record stands at 6-2, with both losses to Miramonte.

Campo is on track to finish second in DFAL. The teams that finish second and third place in the league are still eligible for advancement to the NCS championships.
