Last week the Islander Girls Tennis Team continued to cut a wide swath through the Western League, defeating Patrick Henry 13-5 and they followed that up with a 15-3 win over the Academy of Our Lady of Peace. The two victories allowed Coronado to remain undefeated in the Western League, with one regular season match left this season, which is at La Jolla High School Tuesday afternoon.

Head Coach Rob Moore has 13 members on his team and has the policy of trying to play everyone in each match, a goal he has met with the exception of one match this season. Another challenge is he is attempting to get his four doubles teams to be seeded Nos. 1-4 in the upcoming Western League Individual Tournament. “The goal is to qualify as many doubles teams as we can and we might get all four into the CIFs, which would be great.”

The doubles teams in no particular order are Olivia Strong/Lily Vu, Alejandra Gonzalez/Marla Steel, Ellie Johnson/Ana de la Lama, and Samantha Russell/Kate Perley. The singles lineup of Elsa Ostermarker, Tiana French and Sinaia Haskal has remained consistent through the vast majority of the season.

Next week, the week of Oct. 21, the Western League Individual Tournament will be held from Monday through Wednesday. What is at stake in this event is the Top 5 singles and doubles teams in the Western League automatically qualify for the CIF Individuals. The week of Oct. 28, the CIF Team Playoffs will be held. If the season were to end today, the Islanders are the No. 8 seed in the Open Division, and they would play No. 1 Canyon Crest on the road. The first week in November is an open week with no competition. The CIF Individuals will be played starting Nov. 11. Although the regular season concludes this week, there is still a lot of tennis to be played.
