The Cardinals sweep the floor against the John O’Connell Boilermakers 7-0 on Apr. 9 at home.

In both singles matches, the Cardinals dominated the Boilermakers. Junior Sophie Li won both her matches 21-3 and 21-0. Junior Alan Su followed up that victory by winning both his matches with scores of 21-13 and 21-9.

Li’s strategy was to challenge her opponent’s footwork and increase movement pressure by using drop shots and clear shots. “I think I moved her around quite well,” Li said. She tried to focus on being consistent and has set goals for improving on consistency and communication for the season.

In contrast to Li, Su focused less on his opponent but more on the performance of his own shots. “I played pretty aggressive this time,” Su said. “That’s something I’ve been working on.”

In the mixed doubles division, senior Elaine Huang and junior Aaron Ng triumphed over the opposing mixed team 21-14 and 21-8.

The first boys doubles team comprised of senior Jacky Lan and junior Jeffrey Truong won 21-5 for the first match and 21-13 in the second match. The Boilermakers forfeited the second boys doubles match and both girls doubles matches due to their lack of players.

The Cardinal will advance into the first round of All City Tournament on Tuesday, April 30 at 3 p.m. at CCSF.

As an appreciator of the work of photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon, I have and continue to be fascinated with the faces of people—their expressions, their environment, and how best to represent the essence of their identity in a two-dimensional snapshot. Generally, you will find me at the movies, the art museum, or a record store. I am a lover of old and foreign films with captivating cinematography and generally, any horror movie I can get my hands on. My favorite film to date would have to be La Dolce Vida and favorite novel— The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. In terms of music, I enjoy punk rock and my taste in art varies—whatever can stir up my emotions.
