A Very Short, Very Successful Season
How successful? Head Coach Laura Rosa stated it this way:
As a team we finished 4-0.
As a team we won 33 match points and lost just 3 (each match was worth 9 points).
As a team we won 43 sets and lost just 4.
As a team we won 236 games and lost just 77.
As a team we are sending ALL 5 sophomores on academically to 4-year schools.
As a team we are sending 2 sophomores on to compete on 4-year rosters.
And on the team’s Facebook page, Coach Rosa added these sentiments for her departing sophomores:
“Please help us celebrate these 5 amazing sophomore women who have been the heart and soul of TBird Tennis through 2 very difficult pandemic years. In the face of challenge after challenge they have shown exactly what it means to be TBird. They are resilient competitors who never let priorities get askew. Less than 24 hours from now the team will host it’s final match of the season against Treasure Valley. Wishing the best of luck to our sophomores tomorrow, Marie Fenske, Lyndsee Fleury, Marissa Nemeth, Mikyla Olsen and Autumn Simpson! Let’s go finish what we started!”
