A Quote from the Head coach

“There is no one more deserving for this award than Matia. She is one of the hardest workers I know and continues to get better each and every practice. She pushes herself on and off the court and I am so happy that her all of her hard work is paying off.

She has been absolutely perfect in singles play this season, and her doubles alongside Olivia has been incredible to watch. More important than her tennis accolades, she is a joy to coach and I know all of her teammates look up to her. She is an incredible role model for so many and I can't wait to see what she achieves this year and years to come. Congratulations Matia!” - Head Coach Emma Davis
