Swinging Into a New Season

Women's tennis is in demand this spring, with a record number of players, sixteen, going out for the team. Women's tennis has a strong legacy going into this season, with numerous state appearances in recent years. 

The season began, along with all other spring sports last Monday, kicking off with indoor practices three days a week. Once the weather warms up, likely after spring break, the ladies will begin practicing outdoors.

Although Hackett does not have tennis courts for them to practice on, the team has an agreement that enables them to practice at Portage West Middle School.

Excitingly, the team this season is larger than it's been in a long time. Senior Cameron Nobis said, "We have a lot of new girls, which is really exciting." This size is quite beneficial. Cameron Nobis said, "We have enough for a full team and four alternatives.

Some players have been playing varsity for years, and others are picking up a racket for the first time, but at practice, there is no divide. Everyone has the same opportunity for improvement. "We've been playing doubles a lot so the coaches can work with the new girls," says one tennis player.

Senior Ellie Christian said, "The first match is a week or two after spring break." This gives plenty of time for anybody who still may want to play. Any skill level is encouraged to join. If interested, prospective players should contact the coach, Stephanie Nobis, via email. She can be found at

Women's tennis seems to be in good shape this year, and will hopefully make another appearance at states, and perhaps even bring home a trophy.
