The seniors will be missed but their positive influence will be felt as the newcomers are welcomed in less than two months.
The returning players are committed to share the life lessons learned this past year and to relay those lessons to the newcomers. It was, no doubt, hard work but it certainly seemed to pay off in the end.
Samantha Peikes will captain the team in the fall and she will be joined by a second captain mid-fall. It is predicted Sam will take the court with her "no nonsense" approach to the game and her sheer love of tennis. Sam is a true student of the game. Her leadership is contagious and Sam will be sure to have a following of teammates committed to the same mind set. What will be next will be the result of this philosophy and the prediction is success of the most important kind. Best wishes to Smith Tennis this summer and look to great accomplishments this fall!
