The 2003 tennis season is one of new energy here at Union. With all freshmen and sophomore players, Coach Johnson looks to capture the youthful enthusiasm and start building a new core that will sustain the tennis program over the next 3-4 years.
The Bulldogs are coming off a season in which they won their fourth TranSouth conference tennis title and qualified for a fifth consecutive national tournament. The goals for this season will be lofty and Coach Johnson hopes the new guys will rise to the challenge of maintaining the position atop the TranSouth conference.
Many teams in the conference will be stronger this year and the addition of an improved Cumberland University team will make this season one of the most difficult the Bulldogs have faced. The new players will face a challenge in each conference match. Their ability to overcome those difficulties will determine the success of this years team.
