New-Look Women's Tennis Ready To Hit Court Running


The Hamline women’s tennis team has taken a different shape in 2012. These women are poised to do what it takes both on and off the court to be successful. They have a wonderful attitude, an outstanding work ethic, and take pride in their mental toughness.   

Says Coach Jon Henning: "I am extremely excited to see the dedication that is present in the beginning of the 2012 season for the Hamline women’s tennis team. There are two big holes needed to be filled by the graduation of Co-captains Kristen Kiemele and Kelsey Eatherton. There to step into leadership roles this year are Nicole Krier (Sr., Woodbury, Minn.) and Anna Yarbrough (Sr., Minneapolis, Minn.). They both have made some serious strides in their game in the off-season and will be ready to play the top two spots for Hamline. Tizzie Allen (Jr., Menasha, Wisc.), Carissa Wallerich (So., West Salem, Wisc.), and Leeanna Manthe (So., Elko, Minn.) all return as well with MIAC match experience are looking to improve this year and be contributors in the lineup." 

 Newcomers Katie Tarnowski (Fr., Duluth, Minn.) and Angie Seubert (Fr., Marshfield, Minn.) look to make an immediate impact on the court in both the singles and doubles lineup.  


The Hamline women’s tennis team this year will rely on youth and athletic ability to win points. As a team and individually, they will strive to improve their own games as well as get better collectively as a whole in 2012.
