Women’s tennis adds fresh faces to experienced lineup


Women’s tennis is back on the Proctor Courts after a successful fourth-place finish last Spring. 

The women will battle in four tournaments this fall. Their season kicks off at Williams College for the Lindsay Morehouse Invitational on Sept. 13.

Turnover from last year was minimal, with only Christina Puccenell ’19 graduating, and three incoming freshmen joining this year’s squad. Juniors Emily Bian and Ann Martin Skelly will not be competing this semester because the two are studying abroad in Australia and Scotland respectively. 

Despite their absences, plenty of experience will be guiding the Panthers thanks to the presence of five seniors. 

Expect Heather Boehm ’20, the 2019 NESCAC Player of the Year and beloved Campus Sports Editor, to dominate singles and doubles. Katherine Hughes ’20, should also excel in singles and doubles when paired with Skylar Schossberger ’20. 

Maddi Stow ’20 will be a force on both the singles and doubles end, and Catherine Blazye ’20 will hopefully be making a return to the court after a difficult year off due to an injury.
