Lady Topper Tennis Announces Spring 2022 Schedule
Interview with HC Davis | Online schedule
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – WKU Tennis has announced its spring 2022 schedule, with a total of 25 one-to-one matches leading up to the Conference USA Championship in Murfreesboro, Tenn. The Lady Toppers begin the season on January 17 with a road game at Bellarmine.
It should be noted that the team has 16 home games and three C-USA regular season games on the slate. Warren County’s construction of an indoor tennis facility at nearby Michael Buchanon Park allowed the head coach Greg davis to schedule many home games earlier in the season.
“We are really excited about the release of our schedule. We have 16 home games and the opening of the new indoor facility has a lot to do with it,” said Davis. “There is tremendous excitement with the team and tennis in general in the community right now.”
In three fall events – the Samford Round Robin, the Butler Invitational and the UC / Pam Whitehead Invitational – WKU was 26-22 overall in singles and 10-12 in doubles. The Lady Toppers will return to the team training sessions organized after the New Year in preparation for the spring season.
âI think there’s a lot of excitement with the program right now. We had some really good results in the fall in all three tournaments we’ve been to,â said Davis. “Tennis is a swing game and I feel like we’ve really set the table to keep that momentum going until January.”
WKU finished the spring 2021 campaign with an overall record of 7-14. The Lady Toppers closed the season with five wins in the team’s last nine games, including a three-game winning streak in that streak. The team returns four winners – Laura Bernardo, Alexis Cramer, Samantha martinez and Cora-Lynn von Dungern – support new arrivals Sofia blanco, Paola Cortez, Rachel Hermanova and Taylor shaw.
