Central Valley’s varsity girls tennis program had three players earn all-league recognition during the Central California Conference year-end coaches’ meeting, including Guadalupe Becerra, Daniela Yepez and Virginia Moore.

A four-year starter, Becerra garnered first-team all-league accolades for the second straight season.

She won 11 of 14 matches.

Lupe was named to the Western Athletic Conference Second Team as a sophomore.

“When she started as a freshman, she played doubles. For her to improve every year was exciting to see.”

“When she started as a freshman, she played doubles,” Hawks’ head coach Mike Rodriguez said. “For her to improve every year was exciting to see.”

Becerra had a combined record of 27-12 against league competition from 2016-18. She was a member of the Hawks’ No. 3 doubles team her freshman year.

“I never expected this,” said Becerra, who developed into one of the school’s greatest tennis players. “It’s an honor. I’m pretty happy. My mindset was, whatever happens, I was going to play my hardest.”

Yepez, a senior, and Moore, a sophomore, were selected to the CCC First Team.

Daniela and Virginia won all 14 of their matches.

“It’s a good accomplishment for them,” Rodriguez said. “They played really well together. They had great chemistry.”

Central Valley compiled a 12-2 record in its way to a second-place finish in the 2018 CCC standings.
