Jets seek EWC crown



Coach: Mike Halla, sixth year

Last year: second EWC

Returning letter winners: Abby Halla, Sr.; Elizabeth Kuenzi, Sr.; Emily Halvorsen, Sr.; Catherine Taddy, Sr.; Anne Platteter, Sr.; Tyner Strawn, Sr.; Morgan Herzog, Sr.; Sophie Pitz, Sr.; Laura Platteter, Jr.; Hannah Kubsh, So.; Chloe Kitzerow, So.

Outlook: The Jets have unfinished business after finishing second in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference last season. A season ago Roncalli won 18 matches and went 8-1 in EWC play, and return four State qualifiers so expectations are deservedly high. Abby Halla leads those returnees with State experience after taking second in No. 1 doubles with now graduated partner Jane Salutz. Also returning are first-team All-EWC selections Halverson (No. 2 singles) and Taddy (No. 2 doubles). Kuenzi is a three-time state qualifier and second-team All-EWC at No. 1 singles.

Manitowoc Lincoln

Coach: Jacques Verbauwhede, 19th year

Last year: eighth FRCC

Returning letter winners: Kali Hackmann, Sr.; Seidl DeWitt, Sr.; Haley Feller, Sr.; Leah Auchter, Sr.; Eden Scheuette, Sr.; Michaela Jagemann, Jr.; Nicole Jagemann, , So.; Hannah Ramminger, So.; Megan Burback, Sr.; Justine Jacobs , So.

Outlook: The Ships added two players to the top of the singles lineup which Verbauwhede is hoping provides more depth. There will also be several new doubles combinations that will have to gain familiarity with each other.

Two Rivers

Coach: Amanda Pribek, second year

Last year: N/A

Returning letter winners: Taylor Czekala, Sr.; Lindsay Fish, Sr.; Nicole Daetz, Sr.; Ashley Kakuk, Jr.; Rachel Sosnosky, So.; Gabby Yokiel, So.; Elizabeth Manna, So.; Beverly Blohowiak, So.

Outlook: The Raiders don’t have enough players to field a complete team, which puts them at a disadvantage because they have to forfeit individual matches against teams with more players. Pribek says several of her players are still learning the sport.
