CHS tennis defeated La Mirada at home 15-12 in a closely played match on April 17. The match was played on a particularly cold day.
“I honestly did not know what to expect from this game,” Senior Jonathan Tah said. “La Mirada has one of the better teams in the district. We thought they were really going to give it to us this time.” As one knows, playing–and winning–on the opponent’s court is no easy feat.
Furthermore, Cerritos, which has an impeccable League record, was missing some of it’s most prolific players, including the likes of Peter Chea and Brian Shaw. Either way, the Dons did not disappoint, and the result was a victory against La Mirada similar to the one in March.
Now in their 12th game of the season, the Varsity team has only lost twice, but still maintains a high ranking in the overall District standings.
“I know that we can get far in CIF because we have done it before. In fact, I am willing to bet that we may actually win it all this year,” said Kevin Kim. According to most teammates, they have arsenal to do it this year, as they can rely on the experience of many returning players from an already strong team from last year.
