With five starters returning, the Cardinal Newman girls tennis team enters the 2010 season with high expectations again. The Cardinals finished second to Heathwood Hall in Region SCISA 1-3A and advanced to the semifinals of the state playoffs before falling to Wilson Hall.
The list of returning starters includes senior Andrea Martin, junior Alex August, junior Kate Tringali, sophomore Ali Black and senior Kelsey Zokan. The one newcomer in the lineup is seventh-grader Brittney Desmond.
Coach Amy Martin said the lineup will feature Martin at No. 1 singles followed, in order, by August, Desmond, Tringali, Black and Zokan.
Martin sports a 29-10 record in four seasons as the Cardinals coach.
