Starting off the season strong, the girls’ first win of the year was against Pasadena Polytechnic. Team Captain Fatima Khan ‘20 noted that team members were “so excited about their first win of the season and everyone was definitely in high spirits,” in regards to the match.

Marley Carolan contributed a win in the singles category, while doubles partners Fatima Khan ‘20 and Abigail Beegle ‘23 won three games. Another duo of girls, Agnese Sanavio ‘20 and Nia Bowdoin ‘20, also won two games. The two seniors played an intense match, in which the score fluctuated between them and the Westridge doubles team. The Mayfield seniors ultimately played a tiebreaker, and took home the game win for the Cubs.

Yet the game that inspired the most intensity and competition was the series against Flintridge Sacred Heart. Although it was a loss, the girls fought fiercely and even gained something from the experience. The defeat pushed them to train harder and improve, so that by their next match they could have a better shot at winning. And even though they lost to Westridge, there was definitely an overall improvement. Singles One player Cami Pidoux ensured “We’re all working really hard and doing our best and we’re improving everyday,” 

Though the team is focused on improving, they are also there to have a good time. Players like Agnese Sanavio really bring energy and encouragement to the team to keep them motivated. 

“My favorite part of being on the team is definitely the girls,” Fatima elaborated, “They make practice all the more merry and we have such a good time.” In the end, the final score for the league season was a tie of two wins and two losses. Even after tough matches, the JV girls are always there to support their teammates and keep up the Cub spirit.
