TARA REILLY Tara is a senior on the Tennis Team and a Captain for the second straight year.  Tara has had an amazing season this year at 2nd singles position.  Though her record 7- 8 doesn't really show her true tennis ability, she never gave up in any match and was in each and every one playing her heart out.  She battled back in the Saddle River Day Match the last week of the season to win in two very exciting sets against top competition.  Having started playing as a freshman with very little experience, Tara has grown into a fine, strong tennis player.  She always comes to practice and matches with a smile and positive attitude that shines and is contagious.  Tara continues to be a team leader and mentor to the younger girls on the team.  She has run drills with the girls and shared her knowledge of the game with her teammates.  Tara has a rigorous schedule of classes this year and is doing well with A's and B’s.
