he Cabrini College women’s tennis team is not off to the strong season they had predicted. 0-7 on the season, this season doesn’t look to be ending the same way as last.
The team played an away game on Saturday, Sept. 19 against Gwynedd Mercy College and the Cavs were looking to redeem themselves after their recent loss to Neumann University.
As the team warmed up, Gwynedd proved they had strong players and Cabrini was hoping to make a turn-around in their record.
The Cavs endured a loss of 0-9 in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.
The girls worked hard throughout the entire match and did not let their guards down.
Although the girls hadn’t won any games, they still walk onto the courts with their heads held high looking for a win.
Before each match they all warm up together and perform a cheer to help start the match on a positive note.
“The season is going good so far, I feel like we could do better though. I look forward to hopefully winning more matches as a team,” Michelle Lettmann, sophomore graphic design major, said.
She has also set aside some goals for herself to accomplish this year.
“My goals for this season are to be successful at the No. 2 singles and doubles spot and win as many matches as possible. This season is a building season for the team and this is the perfect time to get even better than I was last year,” Lettmann said.
Despite Lettmann’s great tennis skills and how much she has been winning in the singles and doubles category, she still had suffered a setback this past Saturday with a 6-4 and 7-5 at the number two position.
Each time the team loses they come back onto the court for the next game with open eyes and thinking about the future and what they can do to change their losing streak to a winning one.
With each loss of the season still fresh in their minds, they work twice as hard at practice to be prepared to work to the best of their ability at each game.
The Cavs tried their best, but could not seem to bring down Gwynedd’s power over the game.
With the season going by quickly, the team hopes to do better and make this season the one they really wanted it to be.
“The tennis team here at Cabrini has done so well in the past and we want to continue to be the best that we can be,” Lettmann said.
