Thank you for supporting Lute Women's Tennis!
Q&A with Coach Cheri Campbell
What are some highlights of this year that shows your team succeeding, facing a challenge, and supporting each other?
We are a young team with 4 freshmen, 3 sophomores (1 transfer), and 1 Plus year student. After a challenging start, the team bonded in Arizona during our J-term trip. We were able to experiment with doubles partners, schedule mental toughness workshops, and bond as a team.
What makes your student-athletes special? What makes you feel most proud of your team?
Playing with integrity. Tennis does not have officials during matches so players have to be honest with line calls, score, etc. PLU is known for being honest and fair. In addition, the team continually scores high with academics and G.P.A.
How did your team engage with the community this year?
Cleaning at Sprinker after change in ownership as well as picking up trash at Sprinker.
Looking ahead, what are you most excited about for next year?
The majority of the team will be returning so we can build on the team cohesiveness as we add a couple top recruits.
“Participation in sports has led me to opportunities away from the field because it has allowed me to build many connections with different people. Including people who work in the field that I am hoping to go into, allowing me to ask questions or even get opportunities to see in person what the field entails.”
– Tianna Jeffries, junior
