Tennis set to take on Pacific University

By Eddie Mabanglo - Staff Reporter



The Highline tennis team travels to meet the Pacific Uni- versity Boxers this weekend in Forest Grove, Ore. The trip marks the return of Miriam Cabrera and Danielle Mendoza.

"Danielle is our team cap- tain. She plays a steady game in both singles and doubles and has a deep love for both the sport and competition," said Head Coach Laura Rosa.

Rosa pointed out that Men- doza gained some significant momentum last year.

"Danielle had some huge wins toward the end of last sea- son and I am expecting that she will continue right where that ended," she added.

Mendoza is enthusiastic to get back in action as well.

"Every year is a fresh start. New team, new playing styles but at the end of the day we still have the same team dynamic and strive for the same goals," said Mendoza, who is aiming for nothing short of victory.

"One of the of the main ac- complishments I want to see is our team succeed in is taking home the gold," said Mendoza.

Mendoza finished in third- place at the 2018 NWAC Cham-

pionships and is ranked fifth in singles. Her teammate Miriam Cabrera won second-place at the tournament and is ranked second in doubles.

"Miriam will be in competition with a couple other players for the No. 1 spot. She is a lefty with argu- ably the biggest serve in the Con-

ference," said Coach Rosa.
"For the start of the season

she will be teaming up with freshman Lexi Maison. Miriam and Lexi won the double draw in the fall jamboree," she added.

Highline takes on Pacific University Feb. 23, and Willa- mette University Feb. 24.
