2018/19 Tennis Season

Sophomores Miriam Cabrera and Danielle Mendoza return to lead the 2018/19 Highline Women’s Tennis team while five freshman have been added to replace those moving on, including standout sophomores Amila Gogalija, Celeste Andreotti, and Samantha McElwain.  Head Coach Laura Rosa will challenge the freshmen to get up to the college game, with the Thunderbirds having a challenging upcoming schedule, including a trip to California in late March 2019 that includes three matches in four days.

The Highline Women’s Tennis team got its season started on Oct. 20 at the Fall Jamboree in Wenatchee. Head Coach Rosa’s report on the trip:

“T-Bird Tennis traveled to Wenatchee this weekend for the NWAC Fall Jamboree. Singles were divided into 2 flights, in Flight “A” both Miriam Cabrera and Lexi Maison made it to the semis, Lexi advanced to the final only to lose a close match to the 2018 NWAC singles champion. Flight “B” was dominated by the T-Birds as all 4 semi-finalists were from Highline. Danielle Mendoza, Mikyla Olsen, Angie Andreotti and Kaylin Phan all played for the title, when the dust settled Mikyla Olsen was the Flight “B” Champion. Biggest upset of the day was in Doubles, sophomore Miriam Cabrera and freshman Lexi Maison knocked off a powerhouse team from Bellevue 9-8 to walk away as the Double Champions.”

Practice Makes Perfect
