Woodside’s Girl Tennis’s season is coming to an end soon, with only a few games remaining. Varsity currently has a record of 4-8. 

Thankfully, except for sophomore Kailyn Holty’s ankle sprain in a game against Carlmont, the team hasn’t suffered from many injuries. Last year the varsity team finished with 7 wins and 7 losses, tying for 4th place with Aragon. 

“Though we haven’t been winning a ton of matches, we have some players who have been keeping their records pretty good, with two of our doubles beating MA [Menlo Atherton High School],” Varsity co-captain Annabelle Bechtel said.

Several key varsity players from last year’s team have gone on to college, but Bechtel isn’t convinced this has been particularly harmful for the team.

“After losing so many seniors last year, it’s been a building year, but it’s going along well due to all the new strokes we’ve learned,” Bechtel said.

Varsity girls have their second to last game on October 20th at 4:30 p.m. at home against Burlingame.

“Everyone is so nice – I love all my teammates,” Bechtel said. “Please come support. Though the games can be long, they’re really entertaining!”
