“We are coming off of last year’s very successful season, and we are getting back to where we were,” says Hinsch.

The four singles players and the three doubles teams are looking to qualify for the state and Shoreline tournaments. Pietrzyk said, “We are looking forward to the competition and cheering on both the boys and girls teams.”

At practice, the girls have been working on playing “smarter, not harder,” a method Coach Schaefer strongly believes in.

The talent on the court isn’t the only thing amazing about our CRHS tennis program; the team’s relationship off the court is too. The environment during practice is a fun one.

Senior Kate Annecchino, who started tennis this year, said, “I enjoy the environment; everyone is willing to help you learn to get better. Overall, it’s so fun.”

Not only are all the girls participating in a sport but they are also making friendships.
