The Millikan Girls Tennis team has been making our school proud and dominating on the court all season long, beating their rivals like Poly, Lakewood, Cypress, and more. They made it all the way  up to the Moore League championship game against Wilson on Oct 26, but after several grinding rounds, Millikan unfortunately lost the Moore League title to Wilson’s undefeated team 10-8. 

Although they lost the Moore League title, Coach Frapwell said that she is “proud of the team that showed up that day,” and that they were able to increase their overall score by five points that day. 

Sadly the team lost in the first round of CIF on Nov 3, so their team season has now come to a close. However, Coach Frapwell reported that they still have three players in the running that will compete in CIF individuals. 

According to Coach Frapwell, maintaining confidence will be key in winning future matches. She says, “our mental toughness is our biggest struggle,” and she hopes that the team will be able to improve on that in the future.

Coach Frapwell says that the team is “a strong unit.” She says that the leaders on the team such as captain Ava Medure are really bringing the players together, and that efforts like this have contributed largely to their success as a team.

Girls Tennis Captain and QUEST senior Ava Medure says that the team “really rallied together and motivated each other this season, pushing each other to take challenges head on.” Medure did say that the one thing she thinks could be improved upon for future seasons is the team being able to pick themselves back up from a loss and really put their best foot forward.
