Falcon tennis team celebrates season

The Falcon girls tennis team recently ended its season with the team awards ceremony. All awards were voted on by the players.

Kalie Stayskal, a senior, won the Falcon Award for her leadership as a team co-captain and the player who best represented South Whidbey High School on and off the court. She worked with head coach Karyle Kramer during the summer teaching youth tennis for the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District.

Tess Radisch, a sophomore, won the most improved award after her first year of organized tennis. She went from a first-year player to the varsity team and ended up playing at the District 1 tournament with senior Jessica Cary and finished with an 8-2 record for the season.

Sophomore Amelia Weeks won the best hustle award.

Captains awards went to seniors Tessa Chiarizio, Claire Hofius, Stayskal and Cary.

The teams surprised former head coach Tom Kramer with a plaque for his 34 years of coaching Falcon tennis.

The junior varsity team awarded sophomore Colleen Groce with the Falcon Award, freshman Isla Dubendorf with the most improved honor, and sophomore Caitlyn Workman with best hustle.
