This week’s Cyclone Spotlight features the Mills tennis #3 doubles team, Junior Claudia Bugarin and Sophomore Alexa Turner.
The partnership has made significant contributions to the team this spring, and is undefeated with the season nearly half complete.
“They are a perfect match, complimenting each other both on and off the court,” said Head Tennis Coach Marc Weinstein. “Claudia is the fiery Latina – hammering groundstrokes and first serves, and Alexa is the super-chill Hawaiian – placid and seemingly never missing a shot.”
The duo won all three doubles matches during the tennis team’s travels to Southern California the weekend of March 1. They gave up only six games total in defeating La Sierra, Cal Tech and Whittier.
At #5 and #6 singles, they each won two of three singles matches, thus contributing half of the 14 matches that the team won overall during the very successful weekend.
