Last year the team beat Ursaline to go to the state final four. Although the two seniors have graduated the girls team will keep fighting with everything they have to make it as far as possible. Let us see if the new team has what it takes.

Summer has finally gone and it is time for the fall sports to take place. All players have been working very hard over the summer so they could be ready for their season.

The teams are already decided, and the Varsity Gold tennis team is off to a pretty good start with a record of 6-3 with losses to Magnificat, Mason and Indian Hill.

With the runners-up title in last year’s state tournament, the girls team has lost two key seniors, Alexa Abele and Maggie Skwara, so the team will have to fight with everything they have if they want a chance at the state title

“The season has been really competitive so far we have had practice or a match everyday this season and we’ve been working really hard every time we play,” said Sarah Wittenbaum, 10.

The team has already competed in their first state tournament match against Loveland. All competitors for Sycamore won their match and swept the field against Loveland.

“This season has been intense! We work hard every day as a team. During matches we have so much spirit cheering each other on and lots of energy. I cannot wait to see what great things we will do during the rest of the season. Go Aves!” said Amanda Wilson, 10.

The girls Varsity Gold team searches for their state championship and hope to achieve that goal this year.

“Being a senior on the tennis team, I look at is as one last hurrah, it may sound cheesy, but I mean this is it. I will probably never play at this level of intensity and competitiveness again. So I want to make the most out of it and put and give everything I have into my last season of high school tennis,” said Beverly Liu, 12.
