Lady Wave tennis returns veteran squad for 2018 season

GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave held their first official practice of the 2018 tennis season Wednesday afternoon.

“Right now we have a couple of girls that are still on vacation, but we should have a good season,” said Greenville girls tennis coach Jim Koontz. “They’ll show up for everything. If you ask them to show up, they do.”

The team is coming off a record setting 18-2 season and look to have yet another winning year.

“We have the first (Natalie Milligan), second (Anna Manges) and third (Emily Marchal) singles back,” Koontz stated. “We have the first doubles with Abby Swensen and Marabelle Lance is back, so we have five girls back.”

“Coming off excellent season – but we lost Addie Haupt,” noted Koontz. “She moved to North Canton and took her sister with her. She would be a freshman, so we lost those two.”

“Right now we have 13 girls signed up,” Koontz said of the JV and varsity teams combined. “Most of time we’re at about 16 girls.”
