All of our girls this year are seasoned players with a fair amount of USTA Tournament experience , stated Potter. They are motivated this year because the State Championship will be held in San Diego .

Laura is slated to play number two singles and team with Pawid in number one doubles. Laura is currently ranked number eighteen in the Girl’s 16 s in Northern California.Megan Govi from Novato, a sophomore at Marin Catholic, Kaitlin Torre, also a sophomore at Marin Catholic, Liza Brusman from Mill Valley, an incoming freshman at Tam High School, and Marianne Pelletier, a sophomore at San Marin are four local players who will add significant depth to the team.
