FULLERTON TENNIS STARS TO TAKE ON OJAI VALLEY TENNIS TOURNAMENT
By Tim Tuttle/For Fullertonstories.com --
Fullerton High’s Terry Kang and Kevin Chiang, 15-year-old Fullerton resident Charlotte Chavatipon, Fullerton College’s Alexandra Altamirano and Kalie Laubie and Hope International University’s Kyle Rae, Mauricio Mosquera, Gabriel Barazetti, Adrien Varenne, Avi Bami, Sergio Romero, Jovana Milosevic and Djurdjina Vrhovc are entered in the 117th Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament, one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious amateur events. They begin play on Thursday (April 27) and Friday and finals will be played on Saturday and Sunday.
Kang and Chiang, both seniors, will be playing in the Interscholastic doubles, a 64-team field chosen by a CIF committee from entries submitted by their coaches. They were Freeway League doubles champions in their sophomore season of 2015 and runner-up in 2016.
“It’s (Ojai) pretty special,” Chiang said. “The venue is beautiful and it’s cool to see everybody come to one place to complete because tennis is so spread out.”
Kang and Chiang played at Ojai for the first time last year and were eliminated in the first round.
