The DHS women’s varsity tennis team dominated in the game against Franklin on Oct. 11, finishing with a score of 8-1. The one game lost ended in the third set tiebreaker with a score of 10-7.
Coach Sally Hosley was pleased with her team’s performance.
“It was the first day we had some windy weather, and we did strongly,” Hosley said. “They were focused and played with their hearts.”
“We kicked their butts,” freshman Carina Hinton said. Carina and her doubles partner won both of their game’s 6-0 and 6-0 today.
The team has one more game to play against Laguna Creek on Oct. 18, the last of their league games.
DHS is hoping to win the Delta Valley Conference league and head off to sections. Many people have a lot of confidence in the DHS team.
“Hopefully this will be our year [to go to sections],” Hosley said.
Members of the team haven’t expressed much concern about winning either. “We’re definitely going to sections,” sophomore Kailynn Yang said. Yang won her game with scores of 6-2 and 6-0.
If they do go to sections, Hosley believes they will place in the top four. She expects St. Francis, Granite Bay, and St. Mary’s to present the biggest threat in sections.
