Westside’s new doubles team ready to dominate the court
March 31, 2023
The Westside girls tennis season is underway and the new doubles team of junior Caroline Krehbiel and senior Jocelyn Healy are excited and ready to start the season.
Both Healy and Krehbiel have done very well in their past seasons at Westside.Healy placed fourth with her No.2 doubles partner Kathryn Terry at the state tournament last year. The duo made it to the semi-finals and finished with a 17-8 record. Last year Krehbiel played in the No.2 singles and lost in the opening round of the state tournament..
Healy is a standout in two sports at Westside. The senior was the All-Metro Conference setter on the Westside volleyball team, which finished as the state runner-up. Healy is thrilled about her final season on the court.
“I really just want to play for fun and try not to put too much pressure on myself,” Healy said.
Healy and Krehbiel have a strong chemistry, which has led to a lot of success on the court.
“Jocelyn and I work well together because we communicate well and both have very positive attitudes,” Krehbiel said.
Last year the Warriors finished in fifth place at the state tournament. The current record for Healy and Krehbiel is 2-2 in duals and they will have their next doubles match on Monday at Elkhorn South. Both Krehbiel and Healy are ready for new competition this year.
“This year, I have the benefit of it being my second year on varsity, so I am more confident in what to expect,” Krehbiel said.
No girls sport at Westside has won more state championships than tennis. The Warriors have captured 17 state titles on the court. This year’s Westside team has an excellent chance to add another championship banner. The doubles team of Healy and Krehbiel could make a difference at the state tournament.
