Something happened to the Half Moon Bay High School tennis team that didn’t happen all year.

Considering that the Cougars entered Thursday’s Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division with a 6-0 record, the thought could be that Half Moon Bay might have ended the first half of the season with a loss.

But Half Moon Bay ended the first half of the season with a 7-0 win over Terra Nova.

So, what was extraordinary about Thursday?

The Cougars played their match on a nice day. The sun was shining and winds were calm.

In its other match last week, Half Moon Bay defeated Westmoor, 6-1, on a predictably windy, foggy day.

“That was a hard day,” said coach Carol Donahue.

The Cougars’ success is thanks to a very strong freshman class. The Cougars carry three freshmen, including Nina Bachicha and Natalie Barger, the No. 2 and 3 singles players.

“The freshmen were well-trained by local coaches,” Donahue said.

Everyone won their matches in straight sets against Terra Nova.

Only Barger went three sets in her match against Westmoor.

Half Moon Bay was scheduled to begin the second half of the season, Tuesday, with a match against Oceana.

Results of the match were not available at press time. The Cougars host El Camino, Thursday.

Welcome to the discussion.
