Girls tennis is back

WASHINGTON — Area tennis fans should have plenty to watch this spring.

The five area teams begin their seasons with the opening days of April, and it appears the competition will be high competitive.

Washington

Following a 6-9 campaign in 2012, the Hatchets have everybody back, and Washington coach Kevin Stallman hopes that experience will lend itself to success on the court. Washington will welcome back seniors Rachel Chattin, Brittany Pierson, juniors Audra Stallman, Chelsea Brown and Audrey Rogers back into the fold.

Stallman said the starting lineup has not been set yet, as the girls are participating in challenge matches in order to come out with a lineup with the best option for success.

"All of our girls are coming back so we have some experience," Kevin Stallman said. "We're hoping to really improve on last year¹s record, and just get better as tennis players." Stallman said as the Hatchets enter the season the most important aspect of their preparation for the team to be successful is being in the right mind set at all times.

"We need to keep our focus on getting better every day, and not getting down on ourselves," Stallman said. "We just need to keep improving as tennis players."

Washington Catholic

In his first season leading the Cardinals, Eric Wimmenauer is hoping to improve the fortunes of the Washington Catholic girls tennis program. The Cardinals welcome back some experienced players that will give the Cardinals a shot to be competitive for every match.

Senior Elizabth Brochin will lead the Cardinals in 2013, followed by juniors Claire Burch, Macy Kane, Rachel May and Megan LaGrange.

"I want us to be better than last year and show some improvement," Wimmenauer said. "We would like our one senior and four juniors to step up and help us earn a better record than last year." The Cardinals will face many challenges this season in a competitive area of girls tennis that doesn't appear to have a truly dominant team, but Wimmenauer points to an obstacle that plagues WC so often - size.

"It would definitely be our small number," Wimmenauer said. "We only have a total of nine girls this season, it's hard to practice with that small number. Every year we have small numbers, so that's always a factor."
