Gunn, M-A boys open CCS tennis with wins

Original post made on May 7, 2009

The Gunn boys' tennis team entered the Central Coast Section Team Tournament with the worst record of all the teams entered, just six wins in 21 matches. Gunn coach Jim Gorman, however, knew his team was better than its record and the Titans went out to prove that by posting a 7-0 victory over visiting Fremont on Wednesday in first-round action.

I think the Gunn coach is focused on success, but also (sadly) quite greedy and selfish. The first time I saw him he seemed nice, and I was around average tennis skill. By the time of tryouts however, I saw how he treated the varsity and jv players much better than me. I realized that he was only focused on the success of the school. He was patronizing and callous to the lesser players and segregated them to play the worse players, lowering their self esteem. He didnt care how committed, willing and hard working the lesser players were, or how much they could improve. He only cared about winning.

This stated, I hope Gunn loses.
