Today we continue our series on honoring our Senior athletes. Up next, the Girls Tennis team.
Annie has spent four years on the Marian tennis team. She is also an honors student and recent Marian senior of the month. Having competed at the JV one singles spot last year, Annie moved to Varsity this year and was named captain prior to the suspension of the season. Her conscientiousness has been a model for her peers and teammates.
Annie’s favorite part of high school tennis was playing the sport, but the bus rides were definitely a highlight!
She will be attending Purdue University in the fall to study elementary and special education.
This would have been Anne’s first season on the tennis team. She has been active in Marian’s March for Life as well as Spirit Night. Beyond this, her work at St. Francis Convent has helped her live out Marian’s call to serve. She describes the experience as accepting and optimistic, two words that also describe her character.
Anne’s favorite part of high school tennis was the 6am practices. The girls would get in a hit before school and run and grab breakfast together. Especially days they were off school, breakfast was a great bonding activity for the ladies.
She will be attending Saint Mary’s College next year.
Bridget has been a leader for the tennis team as well as the student body. Her versatility has been exceptional: she is the student body president, science research national finalist, fitness attendant, and volunteer at the ICU. Her enthusiasm is infections.
Bridget’s favorite part of high school tennis, was…you guessed it…the bus rides!
She will be attending Loyola University Chicago to study Biology.
Despite injury setbacks, Chloe has been involved in tennis since her freshman year. Her commitment to the sport runs through her family, and she is also a diligent student. She has traveled to 21 different states and four different countries, including Mexico, Jamaica, Poland, and Germany. Her cheerfulness can brighten any situation.
Her favorite tennis memory is the bus rides!
Chloe will be attending IUSB in the fall to study accounting. She will be playing tennis there!
Libby has competed at JV singles her freshman year and varsity doubles sophomore and junior year. She has a great sense of humor and civic engagement, involving herself in the mayor’s youth advisory council and Hoosier Girls State. Her aptitude for STEM fields is equally impressive, making her a Renaissance woman. She has overcome adversity outside of school as well. She deserves recognition.
Her favorite tennis memory was also the bus rides! No matter the outcome of the match, the girls were together, in support of each other, and ready to have a good time.
Libby will be attending Purdue University next year. She has a goal of pursuing the Pharmacy program.
*These are notes from both Coach Tryniecki and Coach Stopczynski
Note to the Senior Girl’s Tennis Players from Coach Stop: Your talent and leadership were overwhelming the past four years. The months of conditioning leading up to this year’s season showed me, as well as the lower classmen how to work hard and be committed to your team. Continue to share your interest and joy of tennis throughout your future. I am so excited for what the future holds for each of you.
