Kirov Qualifies for IHSA State Tennis Tournament


By Cameron Cassidy

Yesterday afternoon members and coaches of the Girls Varsity Tennis team met in the Oakton Lobby to send junior Eliza Kirov off to state.

This is Eliza’s first time in her athletic career going to state, and her team has nothing but confidence in her.

“I really believe in Eliza! I know that she will play her best and not give up. It’s great to see all of her hard work pay off. I am very proud of her,” senior Destiny Khoshaba said.

Kirov’s feelings toward the opportunity were evident when speaking at the send off.

“I feel really accomplished and I’m really excited I get the chance to compete at state. Going into it I hope that I play my absolute best and get as far as I can. I just want to thank you all for being a great team and supporting me so much this season,” Kirov said.

The tournament will be held Oct. 22-24 at Buffalo Grove High School.
