NEWPORT BEACH — A successful year came to a close Nov. 20 for the Laguna Beach High girls’ tennis team, as senior Maddie Jaeger and two doubles teams closed their season out at CIF Individuals.
Jaeger advanced to the third round in singles before losing to Kaitlyn Christian of Orange Lutheran, 6-0, 6-3, at The Tennis Club. She got a default win in the first round then got past Alexis Valenzuela of West Covina, 6-2, 6-4 in the second round. Jaeger, the Orange Coast League singles champion, was down 3-0 in the first set before rallying.
“I was really happy with how I was playing toward the end [of the season],” said Jaeger, who swept in singles in the Breakers’ CIF Southern Section Division I second-round loss to Mira Costa. “I thought as a team we did really well. CIF was really tough but I’m glad we finished the way we did.”
