|The 2010 Monett Lady Cubs tennis team is ready to start the season with a very seasoned team returning.|
Six of the team's top eight players, all seniors will anchor this team.
Senior leaders include Brittany Huebner, Katelyn Sperandio, Theresa Mangler, Nrupa Desai, Carrie Robbins and Kerry Tinklepaugh.
"We finished the season 7-6 last year but won our final five matches," Head Coach Bob Crain said.
"We have a very challenging regular season schedule," Crain said. "We will have to improve throughout the season if we hope to repeat as conference champions."
"Mt. Vernon, Aurora, Lamar and Carl Junction will be formidable opponents," Crain added.
The Monett tennis team open the season next Monday, Aug. 23 at Carthage. The lady Cubs first home match is Aug. 26 against Carl Junction.
