Torero friends and family,
As May 2013 comes to an end, so does another year for Women's Tennis...
It is bitter/sweet for me to lose 3 seniors Cara Brown, Laura Claus and Stephanie Hoffpauir. I will miss them all but I am so proud of each one as they move on toward their future.
As for our season, we were unable to defend our WCC Championship title, losing to St Mary's College in the semi-finals. We hope to be back next year!
Some important things to share about this year:
Our rankings moved up and down between 35-45
We had a big win against #10 Nebraska
We had 4 girls with 4.0 their fall semester
We had 1 singles player and 1 doubles team in the National rankings
We had the senior with the highest GPA amongst all student-athletes (Laura Claus)
We had the junior with the highest GPA amongst all student-athletes (Anna Depenau)
We had our 5th winning season in a row
We won the Torero Pride Challenge which earned us a $10,000 award
We have one of the highest team GPAs in the department
Cara Brown produced an amazing video for the Celebration of Excellence
We have the best Alums ever!
Next season looks to be another good one...I feel very confident we will have a shot at the title!
THE TORERO PRIDE CHALLENGE IS ALMOST OVER!
