Tennis Team in Playoffs

Foothill's incredibly talented girls varsity tennis team ended the year on top by making it into the North Coast Section semi-finals.

The team came in second in the East Bay Athletic League playoffs, trailing behind Danville's Monte Vista High School. In fact, Monte Vista and San Ramon Valley are the only two schools that beat Foothill during the entire season.

The second-place league ranking gives Foothill a solid fifth-place ranking in the entire North Coast Section, which includes high schools from throughout Northern California.

The Falcons beat Santa Rosa's Maria Carrillo High School in the first round of playoffs with a competitive score of 6 to 1. Foothill went on to beat Walnut Creek's Northgate High School in the second round with a score of 5 to 2. But ultimately, Monte Vista came out on top with a score of 6 to 1.
