BUSINESS AS USUAL FOR GAGNON’S GIRLS

April 8, 2021 Someone once commented to Coach Becky Gagnon that “King is very focused, knows what they need to do to get the job done.  They get down to business and get it done, with no distraction.” Such was the course as the Wolves easily dispatched Norco, sweeping 18-0. “Stay the course” Gagnon said following the

TENNIS PLAYS A PERFECT MATCH

April 6, 2021 RIVERSIDE:  King held court on Tuesday against Corona High and played a perfect match of tennis. Literally.  Their opponent were not able to win a match, and not even a single game went their way. The ladies of Martin Luther King were simply dominant. Coach Becky Gagnon’s squad realized that traditionally Corona

GIRLS COME HOWLING BACK IN WIN OVER POLY

March 31, 2021 RIVERSIDE:  Oh, that Poly-King rivalry. Oh, that 18-0 shut out. Oh, that rebound from the frustrating defeat at the hands of Mater Dei 48 hours earlier. All three categories are, on their own, enough to elicit a hearty “Oh my!”  After all, who doesn’t love a rivalry? Who doesn’t love an 18-0

TENNIS WILL LOOK TO MOVE ON FROM MATER DEI LOSS

March 29, 2021 RIVERSIDE:  Mater Dei, the parochial Orange County school is a power at just about any sport they field, and tennis is no exception.  Their appellation of “Monarch” is a fitting one given their athletic prowess and perennial success. The girls from King discovered that first hand in a lopsided defeat, 5-13. Coach

HUMBLE, FEROCIOUS AND FOCUSED, KING WINS AGAIN

March 18, 2021 RIVERSIDE:  When a program wins as often as the girls tennis team does, the final score doesn’t always tell the story. That the Wolves handed Eleanor Roosevelt on Thursday an 18-0 drubbing isn’t the story, the story is found within the story. Coach Becky Gagnon was quick to point out the “ferocious

ALMOST PERFECT IN A PERFECT SEASON

March 16, 2021 CORONA:  They couldn’t quite match the King boys tennis team’s perfect match against Centennial on Tuesday, but the girls tennis team got very close, winning by a score of 17-1 over the Huskies. Coach Becky Gagnon called it, “almost utter perfection” for her team in their Big 8 season debut. Singles starters,

14-3 FINAL MASKS TOUGH TENNIS MATCH

Written by Becky Gagnon Although the score appears to reflect an easy win, this was hardly the case.  After starting match play at 3:00pm, play continued until after 6:00 pm, at which time the last singles match on was called at 6-6, due to darkness.  Los Osos, another Division 1 team, was the Wolves’ toughest

GIRLS TENNIS PROVES A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GREAT OAK AND KING

TEMECULA: Great Oak High and Martin Luther King High are very similar schools. Both are young, less than 25 years of existence. They share the same school colors, the same academic and athletic excellence and even the same mascot.  The margin of difference between the schools is slight. When King’s girls tennis team traveled south

PICKING UP WHERE THEY LEFT OFF, GIRLS TENNIS WINS AGAIN

TEMESCAL CANYON:  The girls tennis team under Coach Becky Gagnon is by far the most successful athletic program in school history.  Gagnon, who started when King opened in 1999, has amassed a legion of victories and can count the number of losses the girls have been given by an opponent on less than one hand.
