Girls tennis stands undefeated with a record of 13-0-0. They are currently ranked No. 1 in the Beach District.

“We started off the season with matches against Chesapeake schools since we are in [the] 5A Region and had to play more matches; this led to some new competition, which we dominated,” said senior captain Abby Johnson. 

They began their season on March 11, 2024, defeating Oscar Smith High School with a score of 9-0. Their first beach district game was on March 25, 2024, against No. 5 ranked Landstown High School. This match ended with a Dolphin victory, 8-1. 

“We are doing really well as a team,” said junior Shreya Behl. “We are undefeated, and I think we have a great chance at going to states this year.” 

Led by seniors Julianna Angeles, captain Elizabeth Tucker, captain Abby Johnson and coach Lindsay Johnson, their leadership is key to the team’s success. 

“Each of our seniors make contributions to the team, and we will definitely miss them next year,” said junior Urvi Jain.

Elizabeth is a four-year varsity starter and ranked No. 1 on the team. In addition, Elizabeth was recognized by 13NewsNow as Athlete of the Week twice, on May 3, 2022 and May 8, 2024. 

“She is an amazing player and an even better motivator,” said Abby. “Elizabeth’s energy on and off the court sets the bar for everyone to match.” 

The Dolphins’ final regular season game will be on May 15, 2024, against No. 4 ranked Tallwood High School at 4 p.m., at Ocean Lakes High School. 

“The girls try their hardest at practice, and it really shows during matches and in our scores in the Beach District,” said Shreya.
