The loss to Huntington Beach High School (HBHS), 13-5, Monday afternoon was somewhat misleading because the Tigers dominated singles led by Carissa Park and Shannon Huang but couldn’t keep up during doubles competition.

“It was a tough one,” Karina Ward, first-year head coach, said after the match. “I feel like we played well but across the board it wasn’t consistent enough to hold up through three rounds.”

They handedly defeated  Garden Grove, 14-4, however, the Friday before in the second round of the playoffs.

This is the first time in recent memory that the girls varsity tennis team made so deep into the CIF postseason.
