“Hannah had a great match Saturday. Her serve is her strongest weapon, and she’s doing a great job working on mixing it up a little and on making sure her second serve is in,” head coach Gene Marcille said. “I was also really excited about the play of Maria Vizcay Vicentin in her singles match and about sophomore Julia Sowerine and freshman Grace Gedlaman. All of these young ladies are new to varsity tennis, and I think they have very bright futures.”
