In addition, the Bob Hope High School team earn an overall runners-up finish.

Christian Cruz and Jordin Chaney coach the tennis team.

“We are so proud of our tennis team,” a school release stated.

“We had state champions two years ago and are glad to have another champion this year. They do all this without having a tennis court to practice on. Maybe some day soon we will have our own court on campus.”
