|Alyssa and Courtney in Mobile - 4th in the Nation!|
|An action shot from Regionals|
The second match of the day had even better tennis, but the 4th seeded team from Williams was totally on their game after falling 10-8 in a match tie break to the eventual champions from Emory. Williams played as a team really well and just executed shots better than us today. So even in losing, the tennis was really great to watch.
Back home in Walla Walla, I couldn't feel better about the wonderful character, work ethic, talent and leadership we have on this team. We took a big step forward claiming 4th at a national tournament last week, and the drive is there for us to continue moving in the right direction as we pursue our team goals in Spring. Congratulations to Alyssa and Courtney on leading the way, and thanks so much to our men's team and their parents for cheering in our matches and to Jeff for taking some photos as well as letting us play some disc golf with them!. Also, this trip was helped by amazing Whitman alum Deborah Hazelgrove and her family who hosted us in Seattle so we could take a cheaper flight.
That's all for the fall, but I'm sure I'll be reaching out again soon as Whitman is always so active and our players are doing great things off the court as well as on.
Best wishes to all!
