New season, new recruits brings positive thoughts
After a season of growing pains, the Javelina Tennis team is ready to start the 2017 season.
With some new additions to the team roster the Javelinas have hope that this season will be better than the last.
“I’ve seen them go through a fall season in which we didn’t even know what our starting lineup would be to now having a full team,” said Head Coach Autumn Williams.The team added two transfers: Viviana Ortiz from Southeast Missouri State, and
Lisa Carvajal from Laredo Community College, and four freshman: Stephanie Baerman from Antonian College Preparatory HS, Julia Rauer from Gymnasium Kenzingen, Victoria Romanovskaia from Simperopol, and Valerie Ruiz from Ronald Reagan HS.
The team began practicing January 16, and have been scrimmaging every Friday since then according to fth year senior Tabata Lua.
The Javelina tennis team starts its season on the road against Howard Payne University this Saturday morning at 10, and make sure to come show support at their first home game next Friday afternoon against Dallas Baptist at 2.
