LOS ANGELES -- LMU Women's Tennis continues its proud legacy of giving back to the local community by participating in a mentoring program with students from Westport Heights Elementary, a local school in the Westchester area of Los Angeles near the Loyola Marymount campus.
The team is serving as mentors to a team encompassing the diverse student body at Westport Heights. LMU's women's tennis team is a multi-cultural group from many countries, with players who are new to the United States. This makes the team ideal mentors for Westport Heights.
