YUCAIPA, CA – The Fontana Steelers girl’s tennis team lost a 10-8 decision to the Yucaipa Thunderbirds, but the Steelers played well. Under the leadership of six-year Head Coach, Liz Molina, the Steelers have a 4-4 record in league play.

And any girl that tries out for her team, maintains good grades, and has model citizenship has earned a place with the Steelers.

“I have a ‘no cut’ program,” Molina said. “We have 45 girls and if they can be doing something positive for themselves and our school, that’s great. I require that they keep their grades up and stay out of trouble. Playing on the team also helps them make new friends.”

What an inspiring coach, Molina is.

For a complete story on Molina and the Steelers, check with the Fontana Herald News in the coming days for an online story.

After the Steelers gave up the three early goals, the defense toughened the rest of the way. Fresquez especially lauded his goalkeeper, Edith Brito.
