Men’s Tennis

By Kayla Cooper

The men’s tennis team is recovering from the loss of their long time coach Gigi Johnson. New coach Alberto Ramirez hopes “to have a successful season.”

Ramirez was formerly the JV team’s coach, and the team members support his new position.
“He’s a really good guy who knows the game well. He will help you if you are struggling with something,” said junior Jack Carrick.
The team captains for this year are junior Joe Kim and senior Brett Musavage.
Tryouts were on Aug. 25, and ever since the team has been on a strenuous two hour daily practice regimen which includes a warm-up of jogging, running lines, drills of all the possible shots. The rest of the practice time is dedicated to challenge matches.
“I’m still evaluating the new guys, so I’m using the challenge matches to see who gets bumped up to varsity,” coach Ramirez said.
The team will continue preparing for their first match on Monday, Sept. 8.
The varsity squad will be playing at Glacier Peak while the JV team will defend their home court.
