“This match we’re looking at working on some specific things that we want to try and accomplish during the match,” Messick said. “Colorado Mesa is a strong opponent, and we’re looking at doing some specific things in the matches. We’ve been very successful in practices this week, and we’re going to see if we can translate those things into the match this week.”
ABOUT COLORADO MESA
Colorado Mesa opened its spring campaign with an undefeated 4-0 record in the Colorado Mesa Invitational, defeating three in-state opponents (Colorado Christian, CSU-Pueblo and Metro State). Before taking on the Rams on Sunday morning, the Mavericks will begin their road trip at Wyoming on Friday evening (Feb. 7). Colorado Mesa will then make the two hour drive south to Greeley to take on Northern Colorado on Saturday (Feb. 8).
Prior to the start of the 2014 spring season, Messick awarded Kaley Shultz and Lauren Pick with the honor of being team captains. This is the second season this pair will hold the captain title.
“Kaley Schultz and Lauren Pick are going to be our captains this this year. They were our captains last year, and they are the seniors of this team and the leaders of this team. We really look to them to lead the team and guide the team, and set the example. They have done a great job of that,” Messick said.
On Wednesday, Head Coach Jon Messick announced the addition of freshman Celine Voss, who comes to Colorado State from Anrsberg, Germany. Voss played five seasons of club tennis with TuS Bruchhausen 02 and spent one year as a foreign exchange student at Fort Collins High School where she competed in the No. 1 singles position.
“I think she is going to bring some extra depth to the team right away,” Messick said. “How quickly she’ll to be ready to go will be hard to say but once she is ready to go and gets a lot of practices under her belt, she’ll help the team right away.”
