Girls Tennis earns CIF seed
Following an incredible 2018 season with a CIF Championship, the tennis program earned promotion to CIF Division 1 and the City Conference Western League to compete against the best teams in the county every match. Coach Ronney knew that it would be a difficult challenge however had reason for optimism because she knew the fight of each individual player and the collective mindset and will to win.
The Patriots demonstrated that tenacity all season long with an early season tournament championship, huge non-league victories over Point Loma, Granite Hills, Grossmont, and Valhalla. With Western League competition came gritty victories over power schools Cathedral (twice!), Scripps Ranch (twice!), and Academy LOP (twice!). Finishing with a 6-4 league record, and earning the No. 3 seed in the Division 1 playoffs is an incredible accomplishment!
