On Tuesday October 31, the AAA Tennis playoffs kicked off at Golden Gate Park at 3pm. Galileo’s girl’s tennis team, ranked 4th, faced off against Lowell, the number 1 seed, in the 1st round of the playoffs. To acquire the 4th seed Galileo had to defeat Lincoln in a play-in match, on October October 20th, 5 to 2, marking the 1st time the team has made the playoffs since 2012.
Although the tennis team put up a fight, they ended up losing the match 6-1. Junior Jillian L., who came in 3rd in All-City, was the only player to win her singles match.
Despite the loss, the team was proud of their accomplishments. Senior Marlene Tran, a first year player on the team, said, “Going into the playoffs we already knew we had accomplished our goal of breaking the streak by making the playoffs. The matches we played against them were tough but we tried our best and thats what matters.”
