The men’s program has had one of the best turnarounds in the country more than tripling their win total from last season tying a University record for second most wins in a season. The team also finished the regular season in second place in the Horizon League after finishing in seventh the season before. It was so exciting to see the turnaround and the team continues to set its sights on the Horizon League Championship.
On the women’s side we also saw improvement. The ladies more than doubled their win total from the previous year and finished in the top half of the Horizon League. This fall, four out of our top six players returned and we have added three very strong players. We are looking forward to being one of the top teams in the Horizon League for many years to come.
A couple things are vital to our continued success. The first is equipment. A big part of our budget goes to making sure we can provide the best equipment possible for our athletes to compete against top universities around the country and within our conference. The second is travel expenses. This season we are planning a trip down South in March so we can play a couple different universities outside the Midwest as well as train outdoors which will get us ready for our league matches.
With your help we can ensure that both the men’s and women’s tennis teams stay at the top of the Horizon League. Your contributions without question will make a positive impact on the team’s success.
On behalf of the entire team, thank you for whatever gifts you are able to give.
