2017 Virgin Valley Girls Tennis Capsule


League: Class 3A Sunrise

Head coach: Robert Nelson, second season

2016 record: 7-7 (6-4 Sunrise, third)

Returning letter winners: Six

Top athletes: Talia Hansen, Emma Wilson, Shandi Stiner

Outlook: The Bulldogs lost some key seniors to graduation and are hoping to recover quickly.

“This team lost a lot of leadership and is looking at building from the ground up,” Nelson said. “We are having fewer numbers coming out, but we are going to turn that into a positive by exposing existing players to more match time to build a stronger foundation for next year.”
