The big transition

The women’s tennis team is headed in a totally new direction. This year the team has seven freshmen on the team.

One of those freshmen is Caitlon Scott. Currently she is in the number two position on the team and has been as high as number one. Scott has participated in a number of different sports like soccer, softball, figure skating, and even horseback riding. Out of all of the activities, Scott chose to focus on tennis.

“Tennis was just something that I wanted to try and I found out I was good at it,” Scott said. She has been playing tennis for six years. “When I play, I feel good. Playing motivates me. There is no place I would rather be than the court.”

Scott is from Medford, N.J., and attended Bishop Eustace prep school. For her, the transition from high school to Cabrini was not hard. Her high school was small, so moving from there to Cabrini was easy.

Like all perspective college students, Scott had a good selection of schools to choose from. Her final decision came down to two schools, Cabrini and the College of Jersey. One thing about Cabrini won her over. “When I got on campus, I felt like I belonged. It’s a small setting just like my town,” Scott said.

During the off-season she does not take a break. Caitlin has a coach that helps her perfect her game

Currently the team is 11-2 and is 6-1 in the conference. All-in- all, Scott is happy with the decision she has made. She loves being on the team and working with the girls she’s with. “The team is a great group of women. Everyone works hard and they know their role. I love doubles because I love playing with my partner Jenn.” And of course she could not forget about her coach. “Reggie is a great coach! He pushes us all to be better players and I am very thankful for it.”

Her main goal is to finish out the season strong and have a winning record. She also has a personal goal.” I know it might sound strange, but my own personal goal is to hit the ball between my legs in mid-air like they do on TV.”
