From the Women’s Tennis Facebook Page:
“Six years ago Highline College brought back a Women’s Tennis Team after a 25 year absence. For the first three years we finished in second place. For the past two years there was no Championship Tournament due to COVID. This year we came back and set two goals, to win the NWAC Championship, and to win it OUR way. Today we accomplished both. Here are your 2022 NWAC Tennis Champions, the Highline College Thunderbirds”
