So far this season, we have a 2-4 record in regular season dual matches. We came very close to evening out our season win and loss record in our last home match against Licking, but with my top 4 players of my varsity 6 gone on senior trip, Licking was able to edge us at 5-4.
Comments from the coach (me):
This has been by far my easiest year coaching the Liberty Tennis team, due to the strength of the leadership from our 4 senior girls; co-captains #1 Britni Zitter and #2 Leah Moehlenbrock, joined by #3 Audrey Grosze and #4 Kayla Street. These four girls are so aware of my expectations on the court, it is sometimes almost like having 4 assistants to help coach the newer players. Our varsity team is rounded out by two younger players; #5 freshman, Cammie Cooley and #6 sophomore, Chris Wilson. With no previous tennis experience, Cammie has shown very impressive growth over these few short weeks. She is the most impressive freshman player I have ever coached, and I believe the only freshman I have ever had on the varsity team. Cammie and Chris will provide a very solid foundation for the future of this tennis program. The future of Liberty Tennis will also rest securely on our young, but solid, JV players. Our JV team has had several impressive wins over the course of this season. Our JV players are:
freshman – Cory Stanley
sophomore – Brendn Burks
freshman – Hunter Rector
freshman – Amber Reese
freshman – Emily Burton
As we prepare to enter the final week of our regular season play, the JV players should be very proud of what they have accomplished over this season. If our season plays out like I think it will, our varsity team will enter district play seeded around #5, entering into some very tough district play in team and individual formats. District play will take place throughout the week of May 6th-11th.
Our schedule for the last week of our regular season (week of April 22nd) is hectic to say the least!
