With a new coach at the helm this year for the girls tennis team, unique expectations and goals will be placed on the players. After working as an assistant coach under Robert Foshee for HS boys tennis, Daniel “Bulldog” Jessing looks to take that experience and implement it into the girls team. “I’m really excited about this season of girls tennis,” Jessing said. “There’s a lot of excitement surrounding this team right now and that’s a big part of why I wanted to be involved. We have almost triple the amount of girls playing this year compared to the last couple of years so it’s exciting to see new faces out on the courts. My biggest goal is to make sure that everyone learns to play correctly and love it at the same time. That way the team can enjoy some long term success and get back to winning championships.”
