ECHS Girls Varsity Tennis Weekly Update
Monday, 9/20 thru Friday, 9/25
Extended Practice Time: Considering the schedules of our players and tardiness of our players for practice, the Assistant Coaches and I have decided to extend our practice by half an hour. Starting Monday, 9/20 our practices will end at 6:30pm. We expect players to make the full practice from 4:30pm -6:30pm. This will be in place until the end of our season. We are fortunate to have one reserved lighted court, so we will have plenty of light to practice safely.
ECHS vs Tri-City Christian: We were ready with our full lineup to play against Tri-City Christian, but unfortunately they had to default two of their single lines. We pivoted quickly and came up with a new lineup. I appreciate the flexibility of our players and going with the flow. I want to thank Jasmyn Keroack and Frida Pilco for playing singles…they were asked just minutes before they went on to play and made our team proud! We won the match 12:6. Thank you to Mrs. Roberts for providing our snacks/drinks!
ECHS vs CAHS: We had a challenging match this past Thursday, 9/16 against Classical Academy, but we won several games and won 3 out of the 18 sets leaving us with a final score of 3:15. The last set of the match was our line 1 doubles, Charlotte Glaze and Alyssa Ngo, who kept fighting for every point and winning it in a tie breaker at 7:5. Most importantly, our team displayed good sportsmanship and tried their best. Thank you to Arlunya Sisomvang for providing our snacks/drinks!
ECHS vs Santa Fe Christian: This coming Tuesday, 9/21 we will be hosting Santa Fe Christian at our HOME courts at Kit Carson. Early release is set for 2pm with a 2:15pm departure. We are still in need of someone volunteering to provide snacks/drinks for this match. Please let me know if your are able to provide them for the team.
ECHS vs Tri-City Christian: This coming Wednesday, 9/22 our match is AWAY at El Camino Country Club in Oceanside. Early release is set for 1:45pm with a 2pm departure. Warm up can begin as early as 2:30pm. I have two vans reserved but would prefer to ONLY take one van since ONLY the 9 players on the lineup will be going to the match. Please let me know if you’d be willing to drive and take your player along with one other player. The van can hold 7 players plus the driver. Please meet at the front of the school for the van. Tri-City only has the courts reserved from 3pm to 5pm. We will be back at the school by 5:45pm. Mrs. Vandenherik will be providing snacks/drinks for this match.
Here is the address to El Camino Country Club:
3202 Vista Way
EXTRA PRACTICE: Practice will be held with Coach Nicholas for the players not on the line up for our FAR AWAY matches. It will be our new practice hours…4:30-6:30pm at Kit Carson. I expect ALL the players not playing in the scheduled match to be at practice.
New Uniforms: I received an update on Friday from Tennis Warehouse and our uniforms were being shipped out Friday afternoon. My hope is that we will receive them by this Tuesday, 9/22 in time for our HOME match against Santa Fe Christian. As soon as they come in we will let you know.
Thank you!…Coach Elle
