The Calvin women's tennis team is set to kick off its 2019 campaign when it hosts Cornerstone Thursday Thursday night inside the Huizenga Tennis and Track Center. A year ago, Calvin produced an overall dual match record of 14-7 and a 6-2 record in the MIAA as the Knights finished in a three-way tie for second place in the conference. Calvin continued on to reach the MIAA Tournament Championship final before falling to Hope in the title tilt.
The Knights return four letterwinners from its 2018 season and welcome five freshmen to the roster. Key sophomores include Leah Newhof who was a 2018 All-MIAA First Team selection and Madeline Brouwer who was a 2018 All-MIAA Second Team choice.
The Calvin Sports Information Office sat down with Calvin head women's tennis coach Kevin Van Haitsma to preview the upcoming season in an audio podcast. The audio interview can be found online at: Calvin Women's Tennis 2019 Season Preview
