Tennis Season Preview

The 2011 Hudson Valley Community College Tennis Team is led by the strong, consistent play of returning co-captains, Holly Fletcher (Catholic Central/Waterford) and Chelsea Atanasio (Columbia/Rensselaer). Both players have worked hard in pre-season to be ready for match competition this year. They have provided valuable insight to the rest of the team as to what to expect at competitions and have proven to be positive role models when it comes to sportsmanship.

In addition to our returning players, we have four first-year players. Janel Weaver (Schenectday/Bellevue) played singles and doubles at Schenectady High School for four years. Nicole Cassidy (Maple Hill/Castleton) has experience playing tennis at Maple Hill High School. Emily Qua (Ichabod Crane/Stuyvesant) was a member of the Ichabod Crane High School tennis team for five years, playing both singles and doubles. Hannah Infantado (Shaker/Watervliet), who has been playing tennis for a number of years, is playing competitively for the first time at Hudson Valley Community College. The team also is fortunate to have recently added returning player, Kayla Radliff (Shenendehowa/Clifton Park) to the roster. We also look for her experience to be an asset to our team.
