Highline women’s tennis squad started the season off by spanking arch-rival Bellevue, 9-0.
Bellevue, which regularly recruits players from around the world, couldn’t field a full squad for the match thanks to pandemic travel restrictions.
This was the first match of five for the Lady Thunderbirds in their shortened season.
Highline women’s golf coach Steve Turcotte is happy that the Lady T-Birds got to compete in three games this fall.
COVID-19 has been affecting every sports team that plays in the fall.
After guiding the T-Bird men’s basketball team this past season to a 7-7 record in league play which culminated in an NWAC playoff berth, Head Coach Che Dawson thinks his team can build off last season and be even better this year.
With that said, Coach Dawson is very optimistic about the recruits that he has been able to bring into the program so far.
