Virginia Tech Women’s Tennis needs the resources to make strides in a stacked conference full of national contenders. Coach Terry Ann Zawacki-Holdren and her talented group of student-athletes would utilize gifts from Triumph Together towards travel expenses, equipment upgrades, and enhancements to the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center.
"As our student-athletes continue to compete with the best of the best in the ACC, I'm encouraged by the steps that our young team took last season. Furthermore, we've added even more talent that will help us rise through the ranks of the country's best conference. Our players continue to impress in the classroom and I was delighted to see 12 members of our team earn ITA All-Academic recognition this season. Thanks to Hokie Nation's support, we're able to make once-in-a-lifetime experiences happen. It's my hope that soon we can provide world-class facilities for our tennis players to complement the top-of-the-line people here at Virginia Tech."
