In its first year of play under Head Coach Laura Rosa, the Highline Women’s Tennis Program had immediate success, with the team finishing second in the NWAC Championships and four Thunderbird players winning individual titles. Also, Coach Rosa whose efforts led to the return of women’s tennis to Highline, was named NWAC Tennis Coach of the Year. Looking to build on this foundation, the team returns three sophomores and will be joined by two freshmen.

Miriam Cabrera has joined the 2017/18 T-Bird Tennis Team. Miriam is a 3x State Qualifier/Placer from Lincoln HS in Tacoma. T-Bird Head Coach Laura Rosa believes that Miriam will be a key player in the quest for the NWAC title by the second-year T-Birds.
Miriam’s former coach, Minh Nguyen, says, “Miriam is an aggressive lefty, her net game is her biggest strength. She is also the most humble and respectful girl; one of the hardest workers you will ever meet.”
