The varsity girls tennis team has had a successful season so far. Senior captains Olivia Aubertin, Sydney Lasensky, and Cecilia Crocker shared what it’s like playing such a challenging sport and the new bonds they have made.

Participating in high school sports gives students the opportunity to meet new people who share the same interests. Aubertin explains how she has formed a lot of new friendships ever since she joined the tennis team.

“My favorite part about playing high school tennis is all the friends that you make on the team.” Aubertin said. “I also like being able to play with some of my friends from other schools.”

Forming relationships with fellow tennis players is just one of the added benefits of being on the tennis team. Senior captain Cecilia Crocker, is motivated by the support and encouragement of her fellow teammates.

“Being team captain is such an amazing opportunity, I loved that I had an opportunity to form a bond with all of the players,” Crocker said “These girls are so hardworking and strive to give their 100 percent everyday, it is so inspiring.”

But for Crocker it is more than just being team captain.

“My favorite part of playing for CHS is definitely the opportunity to be able to form a group of close friends.” Crocker said “I also enjoy being able to spend time outside of school playing the sport I love.”

Being team captain of the tennis team comes with challenges and having to constantly keep a positive attitude even when having a rough day.

“The most challenging but rewarding part about being team captain is hyping your team up,” Lasnesky said. “It definitely takes time but our cheers always end up being loud and powerful.”

Although there are a lot of difficulties being captain, Crocker will always appreciate the position.

“The most challenging part of being team captain is the responsibility, however, there is nothing I don’t love about being named captain,” Crocker said. This was truly an amazing opportunity and no matter how difficult or how hard it would be, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
