It’s been an unlucky season for the Bulldog tennis team. They play in one of the toughest leagues in the East Bay, and they didn’t win any matches in League play.

They had solid performances in preseason, and then, on their senior day on Oct. 29, the results on one of their best showings of the season disappeared in an accident.

“We did improve from the first outing with them (Las Lomas) winning more individual games,” said Coach Sarah Gallagher. “In looking at the first time, we only won 19 games, with many of the girls going 0-6 0-6 this time.”

With seniors topping out the top three spots for Alhambra, next season will see the entire singles lineup reshuffled, but with the biggest team she has had during her tenure with the Bulldogs, Gallagher should be excited for next year’s seniors to take over and lead the lines for an ever-improving Bulldog squad.
