Spirited Women’s Tennis Team Rebuilding
The St. Andrews women’s
tennis team is in the process of
rebuilding. The majority of last
year’s winning team were
graduating seniors and this
year’s team is a totally dif
ferent one, consisting of four
freshmen, one junior, and two
seniors. Most of the memebrs
have never been on a tennis
team.
St. Andrews has won one con
ference match against
Greensboro College. Emphasis
has been placed on gaining ex
perience and not on scores,
which may fail to reflect the St.
Andrews team’s strong deter

mination and improvement
since the beginning of the
season.
Spirit and determination, in
fact, are two strong assets of
the young team. All seven
young ladies, Judy Baxter,
Diana Jones, Melanie Wrenn,
Kelly Aker, Amy Heavner, Bar
bara Caras, and Evelyn Short,
work well together and have
gained friendships with each
other as well. Thus, the founda
tion for team spirit is firm.
Coach Williams is the backbone
of the team and she instills
determination in its members.
Through the coach’s guidance,
the enthusiastic young ladies
see themselves not as novices
but as intercollegiate athletes
with a strong will to be suc
cessful. Though the team’s
record has not been a winning
one, the team has indeed been
successful and the team shows
great promise for the future.
The foundation for a superior
women’s tennis team at St. An
drews has been established.
With its great spirit and deter
mination, the team will soon be
one victorious in record as well
as in energy and enthusiasm.
