THE TENNIS team did well this year: the team took second in region and earned a spot to play in the state tournament. “We did well in states,” Isis Oro (12) said. The season was fun and full of victory. Oro was one of the many great players on the team.

Oro had the chance to play both singles and doubles. “Playing doubles was fun, but I enjoy singles more,” Oro said. It was her first year playing tennis and it turned out to be very successful. “In the whole season, I only lost 2 games,” Oro said. Oro was also one of the few players on the team to letter in the sport of girl’s tennis at Granger.

Isis Oro choses to play tennis because she wanted to play sports all year round. “I wanted to be a student athlete during the whole school year,” Oro said. She enjoys playing tennis but she has other interests: swim and track. “I’d prefer swim and track,” Oro said.

Practices for the tennis team at Granger are not as hard as other teams’ practices. “Practice is really fun and pretty easy,” Oro said. She had an amazing time playing with her fellow teammates. “My teammates are very energetic, fun, and they all love to play, that makes it more fun,” Oro said.

Every team needs a mentor, and coach Sanada helps the team in every way he can to make the Granger tennis team great. She is grateful to have coach like Mr. Sanada. “Coach is always helping and always there for others,” Oro said.

Although Oro has a great time playing tennis, she does not see herself playing this sport in the future. She would rather swim or run track and field. “I am more passionate towards swim and track” Oro said. Joining the tennis team helps her stay in shape for the other sports she plans on playing this year. “Playing this sport helps me with track and swim,” Oro said.

Playing for the tennis team at Granger is not the only thing Oro loves to do. Hanging out with friends is one of the things she likes to do in her free time. “I like to spend time with my friends and other teammates during and outside of school,” Oro said.

Oro joined the tennis team because she thought it would be fun. Not only was it fun, but she also had the chance to meet new people and find the love for the game itself. “I now understand the game of tennis and I am glad I got to play my senior year,” Oro said.

The tennis team is proud of their outcomes this season. “I know we could have done much better but we were still able to have fun and make it pretty far,” Oro said. In the upcoming seasons, Granger tennis will be more competitive and challenging. The Granger tennis team will continue to do their best on becoming the team they strive to be.
