This year’s tennis team is the largest that Regina has seen in many years. The team consists of 8 seniors, 10 juniors, 5 sophomores, and 1 freshman. Varsity captains Nora Loftus (’17) and Grace Tamisiea (’18) along with JV captains Emma Dunderdale (’18) and Cecelia McNeely (’19) have led the tennis team through the season with both a winning record and a positive attitude.

When asked about her tennis experience, senior captain, Nora Loftus said, “I look forward to going to tennis practice everyday because I have awesome teammates and an awesome coach.”

Fellow teammates expressed the same feeling of community and friendship within the team. Many attribute this to the leadership from the captains, but also from new varsity coach Devon Hubbard.

The varsity tennis team this year is strong with a lot of experience, it includes: Mary Brikha (‘17), Grace Forde (‘17), Elizabeth Hancuch (‘17), Hailey Hoffman (‘18), Floriana Hoxha (‘17), Nora Loftus (‘17), Meagan Murphy (‘18), Miranda Radtke (‘17), Barbara Schultz (‘17), Grace Tamisiea (‘18), and Kirby Weiland (‘17).

With the majority of the team being seniors, the junior varsity team along with a few juniors from the varsity team hosted the tennis senior night at a home match against longtime rival, Resurrection High School. The juniors and underclassmen of the tennis team made posters, goodie bags, collages, and wrote letters to the seniors.

JV player, Reilly Becker said, “We spent most of a Saturday preparing for senior night, but the senior reactions were worth all of our hard work.”

With an energizing, bittersweet celebration before the match, the team defeated Resurrection to seal another conference win. The Varsity team will be competing in GCAC regional competitions Saturday, October 8th. 

Varsity captain Grace Tamisiea (’18) is excited for GCAC and when asked about it said, “We have had a really good season and I think we can do well at conference!”

Even though the season is coming to an end, the players and coaches are excited to continue to learn, win matches, and most importantly have fun.
