I ran into Hilary Whiting, my Gunn schoolmate, who teamed with Stacy Savides Sullivan to win the 1977 CCS doubles championship. I saw her checking the site of the former family home, corner of Churchill and Cowper, near the Lawn Bowling Center and Gamble Gardens.
Hilary said she transferred from Castilleja to Gunn to play in the tennis program. Gunn ladies had 26 CCS finalists or champions, singles, doubles or as a team, in a 20-year period from 1975 (Barrie Bulmore) to 1995 (Rebecca Dirksen).
Hilary stayed in LA after graduating from UCLA. She liked the fact I was wearing a t-shirt from Canter’s Deli. I said I was a better eater than serve-and-volley guy, even then especially now.
