Incoming 9th grade tryouts
For those current 8th graders that want to try out for the girls tennis team, the tryouts are on Saturday, June 6th at 8 am at the tennis courts here at Royal High. The tennis courts are located in the back of the school in between the baseball field and football stadium. Parking on Arcane is probably the best option for parents. There seems to be a lot of interest in tennis this year so that is exciting. Tryouts should last until about 10 am and additional information will be given to both parents and students who show up for tryouts. If you are unable to make tryouts on that Saturday, you must email Coach Hixon at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know of your desire to play and will have to schedule another tryout time. Please bring tennis shoes and a racket to the tryouts.
Tryouts for Fall 2015 Season
Any girls interested in playing tennis in the fall should see Coach Hixon in room 9-2 or send him an email at email@example.com to express interest. Tryouts for the fall team will take place on Tuesday, May 12 at 3:00 at the tennis courts. This tryout is only for current 9-11th grade girls only. There has to be a later tryout for incoming freshmen after school is out for summer break. Please come prepared to play tennis (appropriate shoes are required). Plan on being at the courts for at least an hour. Additional try out sessions may be necessary depending on the number of girls who show up.
10/21 vs. Simi 2-16 loss. It is always tough to lose to Simi, but each of the girls competed and did not make it easy on the Pioneers. We got 2 wins in doubles, but other than that a rough day all around. Great season girls we finished 6-8 overall.
10/16 @ Camarillo 6-12 loss. Our doubles teams today won 6 of 9 matches with the doubles team of Lauren Grimes and Alyssa Powell leading the way with a 3-set sweep of their opponents. Also, Emily Hixon and Heidi Scribner teamed up to win 2 of 3 sets. Good job ladies.
10/14 @ Moorpark 11-7 win. We did not do as well as we did last time, but thanks to our captain, Ryann Stibor who swept her three singles sets only dropping one game was our player of the match. JV lost 0-5.
10/9 vs. Oak Park 4-14 loss. Entering the match we had high hopes after last months show down with OP, but they again proved to be too tough and really dominated the singles and had very solid doubles play. Ariane Carpenter and Heidi Scribner won 2 of 3 sets and senior Lauren Grimes actually dove for a ball that she hit back over the net in a tough 2nd set.
10/2 @ Simi 4-14 loss. All of our wins came from doubles teams of Alyssa Powell and Lauren Grimes (2 sets) and Heidi Scribner and Ariane Carpenter. Congrats to our 4 Freshmen who won their JV sets.
9/30 vs. Camarillo 3-15 loss. We were outplayed at all levels. Tough loss, but a major improvement over last years results against Camarillo.
9/23 vs. Moorpark 15-3. Great play all around. Congrats to Ceara Sobecki who came in for Cassidy and won a singles set. Good job also to Emily and Alyssa for bouncing back after dropping their first set and winning the next two sets. JV lost their first match by a score of 4-1. So many close sets, hopefully next time we will improve.
9/18 @ Oak Park 8-10 loss. Tough loss handed to us by Oak Park, our singles players did a great job winning 5 of 9 sets, but our doubles teams were outplayed to the tune of 3-6. We lost a tough set in tie break or we would have ended in a tie. Hopefully next time we can dominate in doubles more. Oak Park did not field a JV team so their record is 5-0 now. Thanks for showing up JV ladies.
9/17 @ Thousand Oaks 5-13 loss. We lost to a better team, we played well and competed they were just too strong. Congrats to Alyssa P. and Lauren for winning 2 sets! JV won 3-2 improving their record to 4-0!!
9/16 @ Rio Mesa 9-9 tie (78-75 win in games). With Ariane Carpenter and Heidi Scribner winning 18 games and only giving up 10 games as well as alternate Heather O'Quist winning three games in her singles set helped us to edge out the Spartans in total games won.
9/11 vs. Rio Mesa 11-7 victory. Alyssa Powell & Lauren Grimes swept their sets again and are 12-0 on the season. Emily Hixon and Alyssa Spicer bounced back and won both of their sets. Cassidy Moore won 2 sets and Mary Del Angel won a pivotal set against their #2 singles. A great team victory all around.
9/9 vs. Golden Valley 14-4 victory. Singles Cassidy Moore and Ryann Stibor swept their sets and doubles Lauren Grimes/Alyssa Powell and Arianne Carpenter/Heidi Scribner swept their sets as well. Both these doubles teams are off to a 9-0 season. JV also won 3-2
