Valerie Munoz gets only set win for Cats
The Taft Girls Tennis Teams had a hard time keeping up in their non-league matches against the much larger teams of Bakersfield High School. The varsity girls lost 1-8 in their match at BHS, with Taft’s Valerie Munoz scoring the only set win for our team. Ivonne Gutierrez and Gaby Aguilar fought hard, taking their matches into tie breakers, but in the end lost 10-12 and 9-11, respectively. The Taft JV Girls found themselves a little outmatched up against the BHS travel team, which consisted entirely of veteran players. Taft players Kayleigh Pence and Aleena Nelson played number one doubles and gave BHS a run for their money, but eventually lost in a tie breaker. The final JV score was 0-8.
