As she plays her final season of scholastic tennis at Mission Bay, Rosina Valia hopes it is one to remember. The senior is the No. 2 singles player for the Bucs.

According to head coach Trong Tong, going from practically a beginner in her freshman year to being a team captain the past couple seasons, Valia has been an invaluable asset to the team.

“She prides herself on exhibiting exceptional sportsmanship at all times,” Tong said. “She is always respectful to not only the coaches but also her teammates as well as her opponents. Rosina shows true leadership skills by being helpful to newer players and supportive of all her teammates while having strong work ethics.

“In leading by example, she has a nearly impeccable attendance record when it comes to practices. At the same time, Rosina constantly strives to improve or help others improve during practice, and she has become a more versatile player as a result,” Tong said.

“She has gone from playing No. 1 doubles in years past to competitively playing No. 2 singles this season, which is a testament to her willingness to get out of her comfort zone. Lastly, she also doubles as the team manager for our boys' tennis team, which has been an absolute blessing for me as a coach.”

Tong went on to say that this season could be one Valia will look back on with a lot of smiles when all is said and done.

“A couple of seasons ago, Rosina and her doubles partner, Amanda Edmunds, were literally just a few points away from an Individual CIF berth, but things, unfortunately, didn't go their way,” Tong said.

“I'm quite hopeful that she'll turn that around in her final season with us as she more than deserves it after all her hard work and dedication. Despite being new to our singles lineup this season, I expect that Rosina has what it takes to qualify for Individual CIF and also hopefully lead her teammates back to Team CIF.”

Beach & Bay Press recently caught up with Valia for an interview.

BBP: How did you get started playing tennis and at what age?

Valia: I started playing tennis my freshman year. My mom told me about it and it sounded like a fun sport to try.

BBP: What have you enjoyed most about playing tennis at Mission Bay?

Valia: I love all the new friendships you make within your own team and other teams. Everyone is super nice and supportive including the coaches.

BBP: Did you set any goals for yourself in this your final season at Mission Bay?

Valia: This year, my biggest goal is to make it to individual CIF for the first time and to help my teammates get there too.

BBP: Are you involved in any volunteer or community activities outside of school?

Valia: I am not currently involved in any out of school volunteer programs, but I am an active member of the school’s Eco Club.

BBP: Are you planning on college next year and possibly playing tennis too?

Valia: I am definitely planning on going to college, hopefully at my dream school Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and playing tennis even if I just hit on weekends for fun.

Natural Traditional Herbs that I used to cure my Genital herpes

Most fake doctors online will claim to have total cure for the virus and they will end up scamming you, I was once a victim of that because I was desperate in getting rid of the diseases and the outbreaks, I was referred to a traditional Herbal doctor whose name was Ahmed Usman a traditional Herbs roots specialist who has lots of experience on Herbal roots through a health blogger page  with lot of series of his patient testimony that were cured from different diseases  with the doctor email attached to the testimony, I contacted him with the email I found on the testimony and after much deliberation and few questions, he prepared the Herbal medicine which he sent to me through DHL service and with his prescription for 21 days the outbreaks that I have were cured and after concluding the Herbal Medicine I went for another Herpes test with my result Negative with no trace of the virus in my blood. Doctor Ahmed Usman is real and his treatment is very affordable and safe for all, you can reach him on his official email; drahmedusman5104@gmail.com  he said he has herbal Cure for Breast Cancer, HIV, Fibroid and diabetes.
