Senior Dee Dee Lopez and Junior Yadira Lopez were named this week's Cardinal of the Week.

Dee Dee and Yadira are the No. 1 doubles team for the Cardinals tennis team. They were undefeated against Corcoran, winning 6-0, 6-1, and 6-3. Both girls are experienced. As juniors, Yadira is in her third season on the varsity squad while Dee Dee is in her second. They have played together for two years.

Their League record is now 13-5. Their overall record is now 16-5. Their strengths are their ground strokes. Dee Dee is exceptional with her backhand. Yadira is dominant with her forehand. She also averages three aces per match with consistent serving.

They are very quick and their net play is excellent. Last year they placed fourth in League. Their goal this year is to place in the top three in League and qualify for Valley.

Yadira, Dee Dee and the rest of the LHS varsity tennis team will see their next match on Thursday, Sept. 30 at 4p.m. at Steve Garver Middle School, when they host the Woodlake Tigers.
