Matador varsity girls tennis beat South Pasadena for first time

by Nana Akahoshi for the San Gabriel High Matador

Fifteen-love. Thirty-love. Forty-love. Game. The San Gabriel High School's varsity girls’ tennis team defeated the South Pasadena Tigers, 11-7, for the first time in Matador history on September 2.

In previous years, the Matadors always came close to winning the match, but was always unable to defeat South Pasadena. After welcoming new members from junior varsity, the varsity girls formed a team to bring the Tigers down.

Kelly Ham started off as singles number one, Joanne Ly as singles number two, and Laura Ly as singles number three. Alice Xu and Sharon Xu started off as doubles number one, Nana Akahoshi and Han Nguyen as doubles number two, and Brenda Lienh and Nancy Liang as doubles number three.

In the second round, Alice Xu made several good shots through the game. Her partner, Sharon Xu, commented, “When the opponent served to Alice, she just kept hitting the ball down the line, and it was such a nice shot that the opponents couldn’t hit it back.”

Subbing in Tracy Nguyen for singles number three in the third round, the Matadors finished the match with the total score of 11-7. With this final score, Coach Steve Akiyama commented, “We never had a team this strong in both doubles and singles. For the past years, we had strong doubles but rather weak singles team.”

Akiyama believed this is one of the reasons the Matadors were able to beat such a strong team. Keeping this winning streak, the varsity girls are hoping to win first place in league for both team and individuals.
