University’s girls tennis team captured the CIF USTA SoCal regional title in Claremont on Saturday, one day after its highly-successful coach John Kessler was hospitalized with a brain bleed.

The second-seeded Trojans defeated No. 5 Westlake 5-2 in the final at The Claremont Club behind a well-balanced effort in singles and doubles.

The CIF-SS Open Division runner-up included a cutout image of Kessler in their celebratory photograph after the two-day tournament….Read the full article here.

University High is uniting to support beloved tennis coach and teacher John Kessler as he recovers from a brain bleed suffered Friday while coaching the Trojans to another championship.

A gofundme.com page has raised more than $63,000 to help cover the medical costs and related expenses for Kessler, who also teaches Advanced Placement U.S. history at the Irvine school…. Read the full article here.

COACH KESSLER UPDATE

Coach Kessler is closer to home and remains at the hospital for another few weeks. He’s on the mend thanks to the expert care of his medical team while the flood of text messages and emails read to him by Hali lift his spirits. We’d like to acknowledge and thank our Uni community whose immediate and heartfelt support of the entire Kessler family has been remarkable. Cards for John can be dropped off in the Uni Counseling Office.
