Scots fall to Saint Ambrose

April 24, 2015

Michelle Ravel / The Courier - Freshman Katherine Hinman will be one of the nine returning players next year for the Scots.

The women’s tennis team fell 0-9 to St. Ambrose University this past Saturday. The team fought hard but couldn’t catch the break to record any wins.

Singles player Katherine Hinman sees this as an opportunity to get better.

“Since the spring season is over, this is going to give me time to work on my game and improve for next season,” said Hinman.

The Scots are still a young team with multiple freshman and sophomores on the roster, which is something positive the team looks forward to for next season. The Fighting Scots’ spring season is officially over, but even though the stat sheet doesn’t show it, they have been working extremely hard.

This hard work ethic is expressed by how much Coach Jordan wants to see this team succeed at each match and throughout the season overall.

“The girls worked very hard in the spring season and even if the score card isn’t going our way, it just shows that we need to work harder in practice and I am confident the girls will put forth that effort in the offseason to prepare themselves for next season,” Jordan said.

The women showed much improvement and more confidence in their spring season.

“I feel like I am becoming more confident in my game and that just comes with time, I am a freshman so I am still adapting to the college tennis atmosphere, but I am definitely going to work hard in the summer and come back as an even stronger player next season,” said Hinman.

With another season in books, it is time for the team to look at expectations for next season and Jordan is very confident in his team.

“We know what we need to work on and we know how we just need to come together as team and complete that one goal and the way that is going to happen is that we push each other every day in practice and individually,” Jordan said.

“They all work hard in the summer and come back better players, so my expectations as of now for next season are for everyone to comeback a better player and we will start from there,” added Jordan.

The Fighting Scots are looking forward to next season and are planning to have a more successful and fun filled season in the fall and hope to exceed all of their coach’s expectations for the upcoming season.
