2017 Spring Valley Girls Tennis Capsule


League: Class 4A Sunset

Head coach: Robert Bloom, 14th season

2016 record: 8-5 (8-4 Southwest, third)

Returning letter winners: Six

Top athletes: Jennifer Do (So.), Alexa Rojas (Sr.), Christina Ng (Jr.), Mandy Lu (Sr.), Ariana Ispiryan (Sr.), Rebecca Plata (Sr.)

Outlook: The Grizzlies bring back six letter winners, including four — Do (No. 3 singles), Rojas (No. 1 doubles), and Ng and Ispiryan (both No. 3 doubles) — who were starters last season.

“The team lost the top two players, and it will be hard to replace them,” Bloom said. “We’re rebuilding, but with a solid lineup.”

The Grizzlies also hope to have sophomore Nita Fitamo, a former nationally-ranked player, healthy and able to play.
