Sanam Kohanim ‘15 and Samantha Zucker ‘15 are this year’s Varsity Tennis captains.

This is Kohanim’s 9th year playing tennis and her second year as the varsity tennis captain. She is honored to have been chosen as captain again, and hopes to foster a positive energy for the team.

“I’m a very supportive, loving, and competitive person, and if my team is not doing well, then I’ll cheer them on,” Kohanim said.

Kohanim’s plays doubles with her teammate Leila Aframian ‘15. Although she is disappointed that it is her last year playing tennis at Milken, Kohanim feels like she has had an amazing experience.

This is Zucker’s fourth year playing varsity tennis. Being named captain has driven her to work even harder than last year and to set an example for her teammates.

“It felt great to know that my teammates recognized my hard work and my dedication to both my personal game and to each of their games as well,” Zucker said.

Zucker motivates her teammates before every practice and game. She loves playing tennis because it gives her a chance to take a break from all of her academic stresses and to take a breath of fresh air.
