The Coral Springs Charter boys and girls tennis teams are young but compete extremely hard, winning several matches this year.

The boys’ team is currently 3-4 through their first seven matches and has several individual players performing exceptionally well.

Despite being a young group competing in one of the toughest divisions in South Florida, the Panthers have been competitive, most noticeably in their win over NSU University School.

Leading the way is seventh-grader Gautum Arun, who is 5-2 this year and number three singles. Santiago Garcia and Justin Humphrey have combined to win four singles matches, while Christian Silva picked up one victory.

Baylee Effendi and Anish Kommera picked up two of the six wins in doubles. Garcia is 2-3, while Silva and Arun had the other two.

“What I have liked so far about this season is getting back to some normalcy with my players and routines,” said Head Coach Melissa Shank. “It is great seeing how these young players can work together and cheer each other on.”

After several players graduated from the Panthers’ back-to-back run to regionals and states, the girl’s team is also turning to some younger players.

Madisen Clark has been outstanding, helping the Panthers to a 3-4 record. She is also in singles and doubles, while Juhnyee See has three wins in both.

Brooke Clarke has five total wins this year, while Ashley Geary, Brianna Geary, Aviya Danon, Marilynn Ghantous, Chloe Caires, and Brooke Caires had wins in singles.

Moving forward, Coach Shank would like to see her team be more consistent and remind themselves of the little things that make a huge impact in matches.

“I cannot express how much these students mean to me and the kindness they show to me as a coach and to others,” adding, “I enjoy how they are always cheering each other on and reminding me of why I love being their coach.”
