The girls tennis team opened its season this weekend in Clovis at the California Tennis Classic, and dominated the competition on the way to a Division 6 championship. Over the two-day tournament, the Eagles went 5-0 with an unbelievable 353 games won to only 66 games lost. Even more impressive, the Eagles won 59 sets and only lost one, and in that case rebounded by winning the 10-point third-set tiebreaker. The Eagles did all this with only 10 players, seven of them freshmen. Congratulations ladies! Next up for the Eagles is their league opener against Menlo on Sept. 20.
The varsity football team looks to bounce back from a 48-0 loss to Menlo last Friday as it hosts Encinal this Friday at 7:30 p.m. It’s also Teacher Appreciation Night, so come out to support the football team as well as our awesome Harker teachers.
