Men’s/women’s tennis
Wrapping up their fall seasons indoors Sunday at King’s College, both teams dropped 9-0 decisions to end 1-4.

Commenting on the progress made this fall, and her hopes for players over the winter before the conference season begins in the spring, coach Jessica Bower said:

“The men and women both showed great improvement through this fall season. Although we lost (Sunday), the scores were very competitive for more of the players than they were in the beginning of the season. Spectators (parents) commented on how each individual on the team has gotten better throughout the fall matches.

“I’m very happy with how they played (Sunday). The weather was not good, so we were forced to play indoors and played shortened matches (pro-sets), which makes it hard to rebound if you start out slow and get down in the score.

“Both teams will continue with their fitness regimen during the offseason and we will come back in the spring and hopefully start out strong with our conference matches. We have some really great talent on both teams. We are working at being more mentally strong and confident.

“We are looking forward to a break and start fresh in the spring.”
