After a victory in her in singles match, junior Nicola Moreland felt “pretty great, starting the season off with a win, that’s always a good feeling”. Moreland’s goal for the season “is to beat King, which is one of the best teams in the district since it is very challenging to beat them. So far playing for Hillsborough I have not won against King so I’m looking forward to that game this year”. When asked about her goals for the remainder of the season, senior Tiffany Nguyen said “it’s my last season so I figured to just make it the best I can”.
As the season continues, Powers said “I want to get better because I started playing again, I used to play when I was little but then I stopped”.
The next tennis match is Mar. 1 against King High School.
