• Preview Breakers Tennis Season 2015

    By Jon cCharron

    Last season, the Pacific Grove girl’s tennis team finished the season at 4-8 in league play. However, Savana McDowell was able to finish fourth at the MTAL girls’ tennis tournament as a sophomore.

    The team was young last year, and while they only have two seniors on this year’s roster, the girls have all gained another year of experience. The team is also bringing in some new freshmen that also have experience playing at the middle school level.

    We’ve got great energy and enthusiasm,” first year head coach Elin Dolowich said about her team. “We’re excited that we have a leader in Savana, [a junior], and a co-captain in Elise Momberger, [a senior].”

    One player that has improved from last year is Margaux Leivenberg. “She has come out firing this year,” Dolowich said. “[After] playing doubles last year, she will be moving to singles this season.”

    Junior Savana McDowell, the teams’ number one player, went 7-2 as an individual in the MTAL last season and was seeded #2 in the MTAL tournament, before ultimately finishing fourth. Dolowich believes that “Savana has a chance to do real well this year.” Adding that “[she] has played all year and worked really hard and has continued to train hard.”

    Overall, coach Dolowich is excited for the upcoming season with the two seniors back and a promising group of freshmen.

    Pacific Grove will kick off the MTAL season at home against York on Tuesday, September 8, 2015 at 3:30 p.m.
