A historic victory for student athletes is making Chicago proud. The Whitney Young High School girls tennis team is the first Chicago Public School team to win a girls’ state title in that sport.
It is a very big deal for the team and the school on the Near West Side. The girls practiced all summer, sometimes 12 hours a day, in order to get to that point.
The team, called the Dolphins, won the title on Saturday. Their season started the first week of September and the athletes took part in matches every few days.
