Jacky and Lisa, both seniors and team captains, took 4th in league out of 18 teams. They only lost matches against Laguna Beach and Calvary Chapel, which was better than either of them expected.
When asked about their placement in league, Lisa said, “It’s a nice way to end my high school career.”
Jacky played tennis since her freshmen year and worked her way up the ranks to earn the spot of number one doubles.
“I was surprised that my senior year ended this well,” Jacky said.
Lisa began playing tennis when she was in 5th grade. After she joined the team, Lisa quickly became a star player.
Both enjoyed being captains, they said, because their teammates looked up to them and they got to help others become better players.
However, Lisa and Jacky did not always play as a doubles team. They were together for the majority of last year and all of this year. They were supposed to play together their sophomore year, but Jacky broke a toe and had to sit out for a good portion of the season.
“They are the strongest doubles that I have ever worked with while a coach at Costa Mesa,” said Girls’ Tennis Coach, Mrs. Migaki.
They have a bright outlook for the rest of the tennis team after they graduate. They believe the team is only going to get better as they collectively gain more experience.
