Last Tuesday’s home win against Central Valley in the final Northern Athletic League match of the season solidified the Yreka High School girls’ tennis team’s domination of the conference. The Lady Miners ended the season in first place with a 7-1 record, followed by West Valley, which had a 6-2 record, both losses being to the Lady Miners.
The five teams in the NAL’s tennis schedule were Central Valley, Anderson, University Prep, West Valley, and Yreka. Except for Yreka, all the other teams are in the Redding area, where weather conditions and tennis practice facilities enable year-round play for the athletes.
On Friday and Saturday, the team traveled south to compete in the two-day NAL Singles and Doubles Championships at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, where the girls again made a large impact. Yreka’s doubles team of junior Cici Henry and freshman Nishi Patel won the doubles championship, making them All-League for doubles. Cici Henry also took second place in singles. Cici Henry, Nishi Patel and junior Lorena Moser were All-League for singles.
“Our tennis girls represented YHS very well in the NAL Championships.”The team’s coach, Carrie Henry,
Because of their success, there’s more action to come for the Lady Miners.
Their next team challenge will be at home against Las Plumas High School this Tuesday, October 17, 2:00 PM at the YHS courts. They are now competing for victory in the 17-school Northern Section of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). Please come out and watch them play!
As for the individual All-League players, they will be playing in the Individual Girls Section Championships at Sun Oaks Racquet Club in Redding October 28, 30, and 31.
Good job Lady Miners!
