Grace began preparation for their upcoming season with practices indoors starting at the end of January. We caught up with Coach Jon Miedema on what he sees for this inaugural season at Grace.
Coach-What are the primary strengths of your team and the primary areas that need work?
Coach “We have very aggressive, competitive players which is a great asset. I think our doubles play will be strong because of our length and aggressive nature. Doubles play is also about gelling together as players, moving together on the court, and communication. I think our team will be excellent is those areas as we have a lot of character and outspoken personalities. I believe we can improve on our technique and our singles play and over time I think those areas will improve.”
What are your realistic expectations for this coming year?
“I expect us to be very competitive with some established teams and for us to improve as the year goes on. Those are my primary goals. In addition I believe we will grab our first win as a College tennis team. I expect a lot from these players and look forward to continuing to work with them.”
