Tennis has making improvements year after year at Kennedy

This season for the Girls Varsity Tennis Team was full of accomplishments and victory. The season began with the introduction of several new teammates, both freshmen and upperclassmen alike. The team welcomes new girls with open arms, ready to assist them in becoming skilled players. Daily practices from late August to mid-October improved all players’ skills and brought the team closer together. The team bonded and really got to know each other better, on and off the court.

The team was led by senior Juliana Montuoro. Although the team suffered a loss when she transferred schools at the very end of the season, she supported the team by boosting team spirit and coming to the games, even when she wasn’t feeling well. Freshman Victoria Kleinschmidt claimed the spot as first singles player and consistently won most of her matches against difficult opponents. Sofia Valente acted as a manager for the team, organizing and setting up events such as a celebration for the graduating seniors. All of the girls on the team did their best to do well in their games and be kind to their teammates.

Coach Joe Melian returned for his third year coaching the team. Even after the season finished, he still had plans for the team. There is a possibility that he will create a program that will allow the girl and boy tennis teams to play together in the spring.

The team was able to finish extremely well, losing to only one school in the entire league. It is highly likely that the team might be able participate in the championship league next season. This year’s season ended on a high note, continuing the growth of Kennedy’s tennis program. The team hopes to continue their success in the next season.
