L-R Uribe, La and Drewery

A week after their historic run in team CIF, three members of the Girls Varsity Tennis Team were back on the courts at the Claremont Club competing in the Individual CIF singles and doubles tournament. Juniors, Caren Uribe and Jahday Drewery qualified for the event for the first time as doubles partners and advanced to the third round before losing to a Gold Coast League’s number one team, Sammy Wadler and Sydney Lichtenstein from Brentwood High School 6-2, 4-6, (7-10). Drewery qualified for the event last year with partner Salma Mohideen (Jr.).

Junior, Goldie La, playing in the Individual CIF Singles Tournament for the third year in a row, won three matches to advance to the round of 32 next week at Seal Beach Tennis Center. She beat Kristin Shiuey from Foothill High School in Santa Ana in the last round 6-4, 6-0. La will try to improve upon her 2018 run to the round of 16.
