What is family? According to co-captain Mari Goldberg ’17, it’s her varsity tennis team.

This season the varsity tennis team made history by progressing to the second round of the CIF-SS Division 4 Tournament. This is the farthest any Archer tennis team has ever gone in the team tournament.

But, on Nov. 2, the varsity tennis team’s season was cut short with a 2-16 loss to Chaminade High School.

Prior to the playoff, the team placed second in the Liberty League Championship on Oct. 27 and defeated Templeton High School 10-8 on Nov. 1 in a CIF Wildcard Round.

“This season was great not only because our team made it the farthest in Archer history, but I think our team got very close,” Goldberg said. “We became a big family.”

Goldberg won third place in the Liberty League Championship tournament, making her an alternate for the CIF individual tournament according to athletic director, Denny Lennon.

Co-captains Liadan Solomon’17 and Sara Rabinowitz ’17 “placed first in the Liberty League doubles championship match, making it to the doubles CIFs,” Lennon wrote in a press release to the school.

“One of the many reasons I love to play tennis is I really enjoy being a part of a team — this team especially,” Goldberg said. “Tennis is such an independent sport, but our team makes it a very social sport by our fun interactions and endless support on and off the court.”

Solomon, who played tennis at Archer for the first time this season,  called the team a “new family”.

“All of us have grown to be better players and better teammates,” Solomon said. “We have learned how to support one another”.
