In the school year of 2000-2001 (at the age of 40!), I came to Sierra and played tennis for the women's team. I made All Conference both years and my partner and I won the BVC our second year. Therefore, coming back to coach this team I was once a player on is not only a true pleasure but an expression of how deep the Wolverine spirit is.
Currently, I am an active player on three SATA leagues and three USTA teams. My 40+ 4.0 team is headed to Orlando Florida in October for National's. Tennis is truly the sport for life.
I'm hoping to encourage these girls to see the big picture of how this experience can not only develop and enrich their game but set the foundation for their will to succeed. Not just on the court but off the court as well.
My motto this season is:
Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is success.
