I hope to follow in the footsteps of our two amazing captains from last year, Lindsey Hardenbergh and Emily Fraser, who helped bring this program to a level never before seen in UVa women's tennis. My teammates and I are working hard to continue pushing this program to the absolute top of women's tennis, and we are looking forward to making this season even more successful and memorable than the last. Wahoowa!"
