This season for the Union University tennis program should be one of experience and confidense. Six of the eight players are returning from last season TranSouth regular season co-champions and tournament runner-up finish. The Lady Bulldogs enter this year No. 39 in the NAIA preseason polls.
This year's team has no seniors and just two juniors. Barbara Nkomazana and Paula Coutinho are the two juniors who will be expected to lead this young, but experienced team. Courtney Ross, Rachel Walker, Anna Kathernine Curlee, and Veronica Cortes make up the sophomore class for Coach Williams' team. Two newcomers join the squad this season as Roberta Aleksov and Christina Sidwell look to make their impact for Union in 2003.
