NASHVILLE, Tenn.-The Lipscomb Women’s Tennis Team is coming to the end of the regular season as the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament is a week away.
Lipscomb will be hosting Kennesaw State at Huston-Marsh-Griffith Tennis Center on Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m.
Aid is proud of her team and the way they have handled their season. The Lady Bisons have been served a tough hand when injuries plagued their team.
The women have played their toughest schedule to date and have only been competing with five players for the majority of their season. The team will have a full roster come tournament time, but they still have one more match to play against Kennesaw State.
The five players that will compete this weekend have had a tough schedule, but Aid is impressed with their will to fight.
Vika Dzyuba has led the team throughout the season. She is one win off of having an undefeated season, and after her win at FGCU, is up for a spot in the national tournament.
Hannah Gamage has posted her best record in her career at Lipscomb. Denise Buberl, Thabile Tshatedi, and Jaclyn Findlay have stepped in to their new roles despite the injuries.
Kennesaw State is 1-4 in conference play, and 5-12 for the season. This match means a lot for both teams because the team that claims the win will claim the No. 5 seed, and the loser will be the No. 6 seed in the ASUN Conference Tournament.
Aid wants her players to focus on the game plan, but still have fun. Aid’s motto for her team is to get better every match. This week is no different, and she is focusing on the doubles play.
“We had lots of pressure this season, so this match will allow the girls to have fun before the conference tournament,” Aid said. “Confidence will be the key.”
