Women's Tennis Ready for Spring Season

The Mount Union women's tennis enjoyed a successful fall season, going to 2-1. Head coach Jeff Wojtowicz looks for that success to carry into the spring season and a return to the four-team Ohio Athletic Conference Tournament.

A pair of seniors, Krissy Hallett (Willoughby Hills/Willoughby South) and Carolann Sterkenburg (Geneva/Geneva), will be counted on to provide leadership for a team that features seven freshmen.

Hallett is a two-time All-OAC honoree. Last season, she finished with a 10-6 singles record and 9-7 in doubles play. Sophomore Megan Czuchra (Manuta/Crestwood) was also an All-OAC selection a year ago after going 6-9 in singles and paired with Hallett to go 9-7 in doubles.

Other returners for the Raiders include junior Courtney Adamsky (New Philadelphia/New Philadelphia) and sophomores Rachel Amabeli (Alliance/West Branch) and Lauren Olivier (Chagrin Falls/Walsh Jesuit).

Several freshmen saw action during the fall portion of the season, including Mandy Wise (North Canton/Hoover), Hannah Arvidson (North Canton/GlenOak), and Taylor Dowling (Canton/Jackson).

The Purple Raiders will resume their season with a trip to Hilton Head, S.C. for four matches over spring break. Their first match will be against Catholic (D.C.) on Sunday, March 4th at noon. OAC play opens on Saturday, March 24th at Muskingum.
