Boys Tennis Senior Night


Lay'ani Taylor, Editor

On April 20th, the boys Tennis team had their senior night at La Sierra High School against Norte Vista High School, where they won 16-2. I interviewed senior and team captain Lyell Rada about senior night and his role as the team captain. 

Lay’ani Taylor: What was it like playing as a senior on senior night?

Lyell Rada: Playing as a senior on senior night was very memorable because it is the last day for you as a senior to play high school tennis. 

Taylor: Was it emotional? 

Rada: Yes, it was very emotional because I’m also a team captain so I’m going to miss teaching my team and playing with them. 

Taylor: Did you enjoy your season?

Rada: Yes, I enjoyed my season because we had a lot of fun playing against other schools and with my teammates. 

Taylor: What was your fondest memory while playing this sport?

Rada: Fondest memory? I think it would be rallying with my team and practicing with them everyday.

Taylor: What is your interest in this sport?

Rada: My interest in this sport is that it challenges you mentally.

Taylor: How was the atmosphere while playing tennis?

Rada: It changes every time you play. Depending on how you enjoy the game. It sometimes gives a stressful atmosphere if you miss a lot of shots. But most of the time you’ll have fun playing this sport. 

Taylor: As a senior did you feel responsible for the younger players?

Rada: Yes, because you’re the one who is setting an image for them to follow in the future. 

Taylor: Do you plan on playing in the future? For college or for fun?

Rada: Yes, I’m planning to play for college in the future.
