Vikings girls tennis nets winning season


Congratulations to the La Jolla High School varsity girls tennis team, which added to its tradition of winning with a 2014 season victory.

This year’s team ended up in the Premier Division (top eight teams in the county) for CIF playoffs and had a strong winning duel match record, winning 10 of 15 matches.

Four of the five losses came after regular play was tied at 9-9, nine victories by each team and it was then necessary to go to a game count tiebreaker to determine the duel match winner. Here, La Jolla lost the tiebreaker four times in a row by a game or they would have had a 14-1 record.

The team lost to Torrey Pines High in the CIF championship round as Torrey Pines went on to win its 25th CIF top division championship.

Play in the top division was a big move up for the LJHS varsity girls team. In previous years, the team found itself competing in Division III or Division II at best, due to school size criteria.
