“I’m the type of person where I don’t expect to really win stuff like this. I love what I do, and this is all because of the kids and what they do. I’m being rewarded because of their success.”

Tomasi is hopeful for a repeat season of success with the 2019 team.

Mustang Girls Tennis has been a part of San Dieguito since the very beginning, in 1936!

Back then, the girls could only play each other, as only the boys were allowed to play other school teams.
