Boys tennis team is young, but experienced | Fall Sports Update

Mount Si High School boys tennis coach James Gibowski sees this year as a turn-around for the team

Head coach: James Gibowski

Team seniors: Skyler Woolf, Tyler Moss, Maddox Malcolm, Joey Lane.

Record: Despite several close matches, the boys tennis team did not win any matches last year. This year, the team has chalked three losses so far, but with a new, young team, Gibowski expects to see a better performance overall from the team moving forward.

Team advantages: “I think this is the turn-around year for Mount Si tennis because we have three freshmen playing spots one, two, three and we’ve got a sophomore playing number four,” Gibowski said. “It’s young team, my best players are young players. Wait until these guys are seniors. I’m not saying we are going to win KingCo by the time they are seniors, but they can be middle of the pack and for Mount Si, that would be a huge step.”

Team challenges: Gibowski said the team has lost several very close matches that could have gone either way. Being able to more consistently come out of tiebreakers and close games as the winners is going to be the goal for the team. Luckily, he said many of his players have experience with tennis and are able to stay cool under pressure.

“We’ve had a lot of tie breakers, and they lost a few and won some,” he said. “These guys have played so much tennis, that they are cool.”

Don’t-miss game: “Eastlake is right up there, Newport, Skyline… we are in the toughest league in the whole state,” Gibowski said.
