A sore back, two strained shoulders, a sprained ankle and a concussion. While that may look like an injury list for a football squad, it’s actually the tally for the girls tennis team at Los Altos High.
Most of the injuries occurred before the season began, according to coach Hung Nguyen, who has yet to have his full complement of players available for a match. Four of the five starters affected – including No. 1 singles player Yuu Ishikawa – have missed matches or played hurt.
