2017 Western Girls Tennis Capsule


League: Class 3A Sunset

Head coach: Derek Thomas, second season

2016 record: 7-6 (7-5 Sunset, third)

Returning letter winners: Three

Top athletes: Divine Hernandez (Sr.), Alice Borja (Sr.), Alyssa Valdez (Sr.)

Outlook: From having only one player on the team in 2013 to qualifying for the Sunset Region tournament last year, the Warriors have made huge strides.

They’re hoping to continue that progress this year with three letter winners returning.

“Divine Hernandez returns as the No. 1 singles player,” Thomas said. “Divine, Alice Borja and Alyssa Valdez will have to lead the young freshmen coming and show them how to compete.”
