This fall, the BSM girls’ tennis team kicked off their competitive season.  With an unfulfilling end to last season, losses in sections and no advances to state, the team has some unfinished business to make up for this year.

The team lost six seniors last year, but they are making it up with young talent. The team gained three new freshman standouts: Cassie Stidman, Clara Klassen, and Emme Johnson. “I really like being a part of the team. It’s really fun to play and compete against other teams” said Johnson.  The team also has many returning members who will play a big part in the team’s success this season. “To see the underclassmen work and play well with the upperclassmen is really amazing,” junior Joey Trella said.

Another set back for the team was the loss of an expected captain, making Trella the only captain for this year. Being a captain can be challenging, but especially being the only one. “It definitely has its moments where it gets hectic, but in the end, it’s really worth it,” Trella said.

With a strong and positive attitude, the team has big expectations for this season. They have already started their season off strong, winning the Totino Grace invite with five first places finishes in singles and doubles alike.  “Winning the invite was a confidence booster for us, and we’re really excited for the rest of the season,” junior Lillian Nesbitt said.

The team, also reigning conference champions, is determined to keep that title for another year. Another goal for the team is to qualify for the state tournament. “It’s going to be tough, but I believe that we can do it,” Trella said.

One highly anticipated match these season is against St. Louis Park, the team’s conference rivals. They are hoping to keep their winning streak against them this year.

As the 2018 season gets underway, the team is looking to be closer than ever. They are hoping their tight bond will help them achieve their goals this season and create lasting memories that they will have forever. “We really hope this season will be one for the books,” Trella said.
