These changes include drills that work on volleying and ground strokes as well as exercises that improve the team’s overall stamina. “Our conditioning made us fit to prove ourselves once again against them this time.” said Tennis Captain Kevin Chen.

While the Varsity doubles team consisted of Sophomore Nicholas Yuk with Junior Tony Lin, Freshman Douglas Yuk with Freshman Victor Feng, and Junior Joe Garcia with Freshman Josh Lin.
