In the doubles matches, Edward Tischler (10) and Albert Pun (10) won their game with scores of 6-1 and 6-3. Shekar Ramaswamy (10) and Gary Tsai (9) won against SHP in their first match with a score of 6-4. SHP then beat them in the next match with a score of 0-6. The final score of the third match was 3-6. Randy Zhao (9) and Neil Bai (9) also faced a defeat with scores of 1-6 and 2-6.

“I think it went good overall,” Albert Pun (10) said. “We kept focused, and fixed most of our mistakes, which is the main reason why we won.”

Nearing the conclusion of the season, John Dobrota (12) commented on the positive aspects of his season.

“It was pretty satisfying to see lots of teamwork and team spirit,” John said. “You always want to have these on a team, or it won’t turn out well. I feel this was why we won a lot of our matches throughout our season, and I’m really happy about that.”

Coach John Fruterro gives the Varsity Tennis Team a pep talk before their game. They won 5 out of the 7 matches against SHP.
