The Maverick women’s tennis team will be traveling to Minnetonka, MN this week to face off against Minnesota Crookston and Bemidji State. With a 4-11 overall record on the year, and coming off a win against St. Cloud State a couple of weeks back, the women look to rebound from a tough schedule early on in the season.

The team looks to continue to grind through the season after the unexpected resignation of their head tennis coach, Tony Boehler. As unexpected as it might be, the tennis team continues to go nose to the grind-stone the rest of the season.

Speaking on the upcoming schedule this week, junior Valerie Bresnahan had some thoughts.

“Our tennis team has recently gone through major changes since our last competition weekend. It tested our resiliency and we’ve proven we’ll stick together as a true Mav fam. We really appreciate the assistance of Maverick Tennis alumni, who’ve stepped up to help us out during this time,” she said. “As for our match play, we’re on a small winning-streak after defeating St. Cloud, and we’re looking to continue that momentum into our upcoming match weekend, facing Crookston and Bemidji in Minnesota.”

For the team, they look to build something after their upset matchup victory over St. Cloud State a couple of weeks ago. The goal for the team the rest of the way will be to continue to build on their success, and to perform with passion the rest of the way.

After this week, they’ll have two more matchups the rest of the way, leading up to the NSIC Tournament towards the end of April. This team will be tested the rest of the season, leading up to playoff season.
