By Bill Tamburrino
The Bulldog tennis team beat Del Norte High School and Mission Hills High School in its final tune-up before starting Palomar League play this week against Poway at Riviera Oaks. The Bulldog tennis team is 6-0.
Senior co-captain John Shupe said he is excited about going into Palomar League play. He is playing with doubles partner, Tyler McDonald, for the fourth year at RHS.
“I have only played one singles match in my four years at Ramona,” Shupe said. “I met Tyler in the sixth grade and we have been playing together ever since. We have a lot of fun. Playing tennis at Ramona is a lot of fun.”
Shupe is a four-year letterman with a 4.4 grade point average overall. He had a 4.8 grade point average the first semester. He is deciding whether to attend Santa Clara University, Stanford University or University of San Diego. His mom Suzanne and dad Keith both play the sport. “My mom plays in leagues and my dad plays when he can.”
