Beaver tennis looks to improve


Bemidji State tennis head coach Beth Campus is looking for improvement in her second season guiding the program.

"Obviously we want to improve on our record," Campus said. "Also our confidence in our own abilities is something we want to work on."

Providing leadership this spring will be the team's three seniors, Kellie Christiansen, Britney Greenwaldt, and Miranda Milless.

"Our seniors are pretty awesome," Campus said. "They bring personality to the team. They bring strong leadership in many different aspects. Some are more serious than others, so it makes for a good balance."

Milless appeared in 14 matches for last year's team that went 3-12.

"I have some experience to offer," Milless said. "I know how the game changes from high school to the college level."

The three seniors will also be asked to guide the four newcomers on this year's squad.

Campus said that the freshmen bring excitement to the team with their play.

The freshmen are Brittany Waldhausen, Emily Rollins, Abby Vohaska, and Caley Westin.

"I want to play my best and help out the team as much as I can," Westin said. "The experience of the seniors is very helpful."

Bemidji State is off to an 0-2 start but will play its next four matches at home in the Gillett Recreation/Fitness Center.

Its next match is 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18 against Sioux Falls.
