Throughout the season, the Skyline Women’s Tennis team has won 4 games, those teams were Brighton, Highland, East and Alta. Although the season has almost ended, the Skyline team’s players and coaches are practicing and looking forward to the next tennis season in fall. They practice every Monday and Wednesday in the season and practice throughout the summer on the new Skyline tennis courts. They start practicing in the middle of June and hold tryouts beginning in August. The season goes until the beginning of September and then regionals and states happen.

The team’s players are passionate about being on the tennis team and have had an amazing experience. “I joined the tennis team because I have always had a passion for tennis and I could do it with all my friends,” said Skyline Freshman Anna Tagge. She added, “I’ve been playing tennis for over a year. I got serious about it a year ago but I’ve been playing my entire life. I like it because it’s like something bigger than myself, and I got to meet more people that I don’t think I would’ve met.” Anna is looking forward to all the practices, meeting new people, and matches with her double partner.

Freshman Emilie Leeflang, who has been playing tennis for 3 years, said, “I’m actually pretty proud of myself for being a Freshman on the JV team.” When asked what is the best part about being on the tennis team, she said, “I think all the people on the team are very positive and the games are super fun.” She originally joined the team because she wants to make more friends and have fun outside of school activities! Emilie is looking forward to some of their last games: “It will be awesome,” she said. Everybody says their favorite thing about being on the team are the matches and the people. Everyone is so positive and they cheer you on no matter what, even though tennis is supposed to stay quiet.

The teams go from Varsity, Junior Varsity, Junior Varsity Two, Academy, and Blue and Gold Team. Due to the increase of interest in tennis this year, the coaches added a new team below Academy, called the Blue and Gold team to increase participation. All of the Skyline Tennis teams offer great opportunities for students to make friends and grow their skills in tennis.
