Mar Vista High School Boy’s Tennis Team Enjoying A Fun Tennis Season

The Mar Vista High School boy’s tennis team has come out swinging (literally) this season and is currently at a 4-3 season win-loss record.

Ironically, the tennis team this year consists of almost exclusively first time players with only three people remaining from last year. The other nine members are completely new to the high school version of the sport, some of them playing tennis for the first time ever this season. Usually, when a high school sports team has a 75% new player rate, the result is a difficult season. Instead, the new membership and the new coach, Mr. Joshua Hill, have added a vivacity and fresh drive to the team which has resulted in a performance edge that was lacking last year.

So far, this is one of the best seasons that boy’s tennis has had at Mar Vista. Admittedly, the four wins were games that Southwest High School and Castle Park High School forfeited because neither school has a tennis team. However, the four losses have been intense games versus Montgomery and Sweetwater High School.

While chances of obtaining a CIF banner this year are sketchy at best, the Mariners are determined to give their opponents “a run for their money.” Two of the three losses of this season clearly demonstrate the success of this tactic. The Mariners faced off against Sweetwater High School on Tuesday, March 15, and lost with a final score of 15-3. Sweetwater is the unrivaled best team in the district, so it was a great accomplishment for the Mariners to win any sets at all, especially since last year, both times the Mariners faced off against Sweetwater, they were shutout 18-0. On Tuesday, April 5, the Mariners played a close game versus Montgomery High School, which resulted in a final score of 12-6. All that was required for a tie was for three sets to change hands. Despite the loss, the Mariners played admirably with several hotly contested and close sets. The Mariners played San Yisidro High School on April 6, no score available at press time, and will play Sweetwater High School on today, April 7.

After the game versus Montgomery, two of the new players on the team were interviewed. Oscar Vargas and Daniel Martinez play singles and doubles respectively. Vargas is a sophomore at Mar Visa and he started playing tennis around age seven. Martinez is a junior and he hadn’t so much as touched a tennis racquet before tryouts this year. Despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacle of inexperience, Martinez has come remarkably far and he and his partner were able to win two of their three sets versus Montgomery. Vargas is an extremely valuable asset to the team because of the polished and professional style in which he plays. He was able to win a set versus Sweetwater.

Vargas was asked what playing singles it like. “I’d say it’s really fun, and hard, because the pressure is on you. You don’t depend on any other team member. You know that if you lose, it’s your fault, but if you win, it’s all on you.” His statement to the folks of Imperial Beach is, “Our team is full of really good and fun players. I can always count on them to help me out and support me. Come out and support us; it helps us help one another.

Martinez was asked how he thought the game versus Montgomery went. He said, “The game went pretty well. We won our first two sets and lost against their top team. Me and my partner, we’ve been working as a team and hopefully for CIF we can advance and win.” His statement to the folks of IB is, “All of my teammates have been working really hard, showing up to practice every day, just trying to get better, so hopefully people will come and support.”

Mr. Hill, the head coach, was also interviewed. He was asked how he thought the season was going to go based on the Montgomery game. His response was, “I am cautiously optimistic. The whole theme for this season is having fun and that is what we will do.” When asked for a statement to give to the folks of IB, he said, “Boys tennis looks a lot different than it ever has at Mar Vista that’s for sure! There’s a lot of laughter, hard work, and dedication in this group. Come on out to our April 12 game versus San Yisidro at Montgomery at 3 p.m. See you there!”
