#11 Westmont Women’s Tennis has secured a first-round bye in this upcoming week’s GSAC Women’s Tennis Championship

By Jordan Wyatt:

The Lady Warriors of #11 Westmont Women’s Tennis (10-11, 8-2 GSAC) have concluded their vigorous and challenging 2014 regular-season slate in winning fashion by knocking off four of their last five opponents.

From their initial match to their last, the squad’s schedule was riddled with competitive contests. In total, Westmont faced off with nine ranked sides and participated in matches with three teams from each division of the NCAA (I, II and III).

First-year Westmont head coach Kendyll McManigal does not discourage the strenuous nature of the team’s schedule, declaring that it galvanizes her squad by creating new enthusiasm for each match.

Westmont Men’s Soccer has announced the signing of six recruits for the 2014 recruiting class. These student-athletes, with an outstanding combined grade-point average of 3.78, will matriculate at Westmont in the fall. All six are from California.

“This 2014 recruiting class will continue to build on the momentum that was established during our fall season,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “Similar to the 2013 class, I think the most important attribute of this class is that they are all an excellent fit for the culture of our program. They know the guys on the team well because of their visits to campus, and have already been able to weave themselves into the fabric of our team.”

Wolf commented, “This is another exemplary recruiting class in terms of academic fit for Westmont. Each recruit has impressive classroom credentials. This academic integrity is a vital ingredient to our program. We want players who are able to balance their class work with a demanding soccer schedule. This is also a highly talented recruiting class—with three players having USSF Academy experience (the highest level of club soccer available), and the rest playing on elite club teams in California. All six players were named All-League in their respective high school conferences and many advanced far into the CIF playoffs.”
