Before the Vista match, the Sentinel interviewed senior Taylor Romero. She considered herself a basketball player in middle school,

“The day before tennis tryouts I decided to try tennis,” she said. “I wanted to try a non-contact sport. My entire family plays tennis so I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did.”

When Taylor says that her entire family plays, she is not exaggerating. Her father Troy, mother Kim and sisters Brittany, Halli and Lexi all hit the court.

Taylor made the junior varsity as a freshman and sophomore and moved up to the varsity last season.

“After my freshman year I got serious about tennis and started taking lessons and playing as often as I could,” she said.

Last year she played doubles and singles but this season she is mainly a singles player.

“Taylor is an outstanding team member, all of the girls
