Islander Girls Tennis Head Coach Rob Moore is normally pretty matter-of-fact about the teams he has coached at CHS, so when he says this year’s team is going to be really good, you have to take notice. The team is scheduled to play Tuesday of this week at home at 3:30 p.m. against Serra. Thursday the team travels to Mira Costa College to play San Dieguito, which usually is a very competitive match. Next Tuesday the Islanders will host Francis Parker at 3:15 p.m.

Moore announced his tentative starting lineup, which has the somewhat unusual feature of all three of his team’s singles players being freshmen. Competing at No. 1 singles will be Aida Garcia, No. 2 will be Hannah Quirk and playing at No. 3 singles will be Summer Vu. The doubles teams feature the No. 1 pair of Chrissy Seggerman/Aldara Krantzberg; No. 2 doubles will be Karina De la Torre/Kayla Sacks and playing No. 3 doubles will be Miranda Diaz/Alice Nahmad. Other varsity members who are competing to crack the starting lineup include Virginia Beall, Jasmine Summers-Evans and Kelly Zarankow.

Coronado will compete in the Western League, which top to bottom is probably the best in San Diego County. Included in the circuit with Coronado are the Academy of Our Lady of Peace, Cathedral Catholic, La Jolla, Scripps Ranch and University City. The Islanders are in the mix of the Open Division/Division I pool which contains 24 teams. Eight of the teams will compete in the Open Division while the remaining 16 will fight it out in Division I.

Right now Coronado, based on results over the past five years, is ranked in the exact middle at No. 12 among the 24 teams.
