The Centennial girls tennis team currently has a record of 5-3,  the team has so far had a good season. Since Coach Ben Petersen took over six years ago, the girls tennis program has been steadily growing and getting better.  The team won a total of four games during all of last season, but this season they have won five games with still four games left.

The team is led by singles players Madison Scully and  Kailea Messenger, and doubles pair Avelina Borovskiy and Brittney Pioquinto. Peterson said that Borovskiy and Pioquinto a chance at being able to go to state, that duo has only lost to Clackamas and Oregon city.

This seasons team is also senior heavy and has many great players across the board.  When Peterson was asked about the performance of his players he said, “The team is coming around and playing really well.”

The weather has also played a big part in the girls season so far, forcing them to practice inside and reschedule some of their games “It’s been a rough year weather wise” said Petersen.  Despite the weather troubles the Eagles still have a winning record having beaten everybody in the conference except Clackamas and Central Catholic.
To continue their strong run this season the team will need to take it one game at a time.  The Eagles still have four games left against Central Catholic, Clackamas, Gresham and David Douglas.
