Although it isn’t the most popular sport, it is a sport enjoyed by many here at Archbishop Ryan.

The 2017  girl’s tennis team ended their season with 4 wins and 4 losses. Their season began the middle of August and ended on Sept 26.

Newosi Neba, a senior at Ryan has been playing tennis since her sophomore year.  

“I decided that I wanted to do a sport and tennis looked the most interesting to me so I joined.” said Neba.

She is going to miss being able to go to practice,just hitting a ball, and having a rally with teammates.

This year, the team had multiple people join the team, along with one very special player.

 Dorothy Smith is a junior at Ryan and has never played tennis before this year. Throughout the season, she has improved greatly and worked her way up from second doubles to starting first singles next year as a senior. She was also promoted to team captain for next year as well.

Smith also plays on Archbishop Ryan’s softball team as well.

“I decided to join tennis as a junior because I wanted to get involved for my last two years here at Ryan and it’s been so much fun.” said Smith.

“I’m going to miss the team and the sport itself when I go off to college.” said Neba.

Alyssa Sliwa, co-captain of the team, has been playing tennis since she was younger. But didn’t play competitively until her sophomore year when she joined the team.

Sliwa decided to join the team because it looked fun and she wanted to become more involved in high school.

“I’m going to miss being able to go to practice after school and taking my mind off of school and stress for a few hours while I practiced with my friends.”said Sliwa
