Girls Tennis:

In the East Bay Athletic League (EBAL) with 10 teams, The Dublin High Varsity Girls Tennis team ended up with a league record of 3-9, coming in at 7th place in the East Bay Athletic League. In terms of standings, the girls ended up behind San Ramon Valley High and were ahead of Carondelet High. The Varsity Girls Tennis team did have a solid season, however, and hopefully, the girls varsity team will have an even better one next year.

Girls Volleyball:

As for the Dublin High Varsity Girls Volleyball team, they certainly had an impressive season. In terms of the East Bay Athletic League (EBAL) with 10 teams, the volleyball team ended with a record of 10-3, coming in at 3rd place behind schools Foothill High and Monte Vista High. However, if they were ranked in terms of all teams they played (including the ones not in the East Bay Athletic League), the team would end with an overall record of 26-6. Unfortunately Dublin’s playoff run was stopped after they were defeated by Redwood High with a score of 3-1 in the the NCS/Les Schwab Tires Girls’ Volleyball Championship. Let’s hope that the Varsity Team will win the title next year!
