Phil Kao was the only graduating senior. He made significant contributions in his four years, and certainly will be missed. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
Brandon, JJ and I are looking forward to this season. We were very pleased with the way the team competed last year day in, and day out. We made significant strides in getting Stanford Tennis back toward the top. This year we plan to take it another step. We have our normal fall events, highlighted by our annual trip to Hawaii Thanksgiving week. We will be going to Maui once again. The team always looks forward to this trip. We look forward to seeing you at our matches. Thank you for all your support over the years. Go Card!!
