The duo of Bohner and Blackey are in their second year as a doubles team.

While their communication as grown stronger, the tandem has goals bigger goals in mind.

“We want to become as strong as we can and win as many matches as we can,” said Blackey. “We want to continue to improve throughout the season and be able to look back and be proud of how hard we worked together.”

For seniors such as Bohner, who is a four-year varsity player, she has seen the Wildcats program finish no higher than fifth in the Citrus Belt League the last two season.

“We have beaten Cajon and Citrus Valley so we are planning on being up there (this year),” she stated. “As a team our biggest goal is to make it in the Top 3 and we are on the path to doing just that.”

Vizcaino won two of her three matches against the Blackhawks as the Wildcats’ No. 2 singles player.

REV will continue its journey to the top of the CBL standings at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday against Yucaipa.

Citrus Valley girls tennis earns victory over Cajon

The Citrus Valley girls tennis team defeated Cajon, 15-3, in nonconference play on Thursday.
Nikki Hernandez and Lela Aviles won all three sets in doubles play against the Cowgirls, 6-3, 6-0, 6-2.
Members of the Blackhawks team were nervous about how the match would play out after suffering losses to the Cowgirls last year.  

 “We lost to them last year but both of the matches were really close,” Aviles said. “I know they have a good coach and they are generally a consistently decent team, so I was nervous to see how (the match) was going to work out.”

Aviles also stated that both teams had lost key players from last season but the Blackhawks have had players such as junior Chandler Tillman step up.

Tillman, who is the No. 1 singles player for the Blackhawks, won all three of her sets against the Cowgirls, 6-0, 6-0, 6-2.

“She has definitely helped our team a lot because we lost Maddie Daniels who was our number one singles player last year,” Aviles added.
