The ball is in their court

With 11 players, four freshmen, and three captains on the Olivet Women’s Tennis Team this year, the girls are ready to get back into the grind of the season and take back the courts.

"This season is going to be fun," said captain Bre Rudlaff. "We have a lot of growing to do as a team, but we all have potential to improve a lot this year."

With seven returning from last year, players are excited about how much experience and possible talent is already on the team.

"I’m very optimistic about this season because all of our returning players are talented and experienced," said senior and captain Isabel Snyder. "Many of the freshman players show a lot of potential." With experience on the team the four new freshmen have some hopes and excitements for the season.

"I’m excited to better myself as an individual player and to improve my skills as a doubles partner," said freshman Sydnie Weller.

Some freshmen are just pumped for the overall experience of the tennis team.

"I’m excited to meet new people and make some lifelong friends," said freshman Taylor Robbins.
