Closing off their season with an 8-3 overall record, the tennis team’s playoff run came to an end as they fell short to the Highland Park Scots 10-0 in the second match of the Region II-5A playoffs.

“I think we did really well, I think everyone stepped up and we were able to get in such a position where we were able to win and make it pretty far in playoffs,” junior Sohum Shah said. “I think we will have more practices and we will do more drills as far as teamwork goes because that is something we can work on, and I think we can work on our volleys because that’s a good part of tennis that allows you to win more points.”

Although the match did not end in the Redhawks’ favor, their playoff run provided the team with experience for next year.

“It’s pretty evident we didn’t achieve the score we wanted, but we got to experience how competitive some of the best teams in the state are,” junior Anushka Sinha said. “We will need to work on a better defense as Highland Park is very aggressive and goes for any and every attack they can.”
