Jon Messick QUOTABLES
(on Drake and Nebraska)
“I think that both Drake and Nebraska are going to be really tough teams,” said head coach Jon Messick. “Drake has had some really solid wins lately and Nebraska is always good, they’re still nationally ranked and they’re always tough. Practices have been going really well the last couple of weeks and I think our players have been getting better at some things we’ve been working on. I think both these matches will be a good test for us.”
Drake comes into the weekend with an overall record of 5-1, however the Bulldogs currently own a five game winning streak, with their most recent victory coming against Wisconsin by a final score of 4-3. Mariel Ante, Nell Boyd and Jordan Eggleson all own 5-1 dual records this spring. The doubles tandem of Eggleson and Boyd are also undefeated in doubles this season at 3-0.
Nebraska enters the weekend with an overall record of 5-3 with its most recent victory coming against Northern Iowa by a final score of 4-1. No. 1 player Maggie Lehmicke is undefeated in dual play this spring and 14-5 overall this season. The doubles combination of Izabella Zgierska and Maike Zeppernick own a dual recod of 5-2 this season.
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.”
