On Thursday, Sept. 28, the varsity girls’ tennis team took on the Chino High School Cowboys in the third home league game of the season. While the matches were neck-and-neck for much of the game, the Chargers were able to emerge victorious by the end with a score of 11-7.

In this game, there was a slight change in the normal lineup that consisted the switch of Alexis Preston, junior, who took the place of Lesley Munoz, senior. While the Chargers won many of their sets at the beginning of the match, the Chino team was a formidable opponent and kept the pressure on the girls in the second set.

Suddenly, in the middle of the game, all attention was diverted from the individual matches to a young bird that had walked into the vicinity of the courts. While it originally distracted the spectators, it became a problem when it ran onto the courts, stopping senior Madison Tyrone’s game. The bird’s small size and quick reflexes made its capture difficult for the number of individuals who tried. However, after multiple attempts, the bird was finally caught and released on the other side of the field.

Though the game was a struggle, the Chargers soon showed that they were superior to the Cowboys when they reached 10 points before their opponents did. This could be partially attributed to doubles team Gabriella Tellez, senior, and Breana Ramos, senior, who went undefeated in their sets. “Being focused was important,” Breana said, “We knew ahead of time that this game was going to be hard to win, so we prepared mentally beforehand.”

Other players had some difficulty with their opponents, but all of the girls were able to win one of their sets, which was a main factor in the win. “I just had to play my own game. [Chino] often hit the ball really lightly, but I have to make sure I don’t drop to their level,” Skyanne Light, junior, said.
