Collin College’s Women’s Tennis won the Region V Championship and finished ninth in the nation with a strong performance at the National Junior College Athletic Association DI Championship, May 5-9 in Tyler.
Collin Tennis is in the Top 15 nationally for men and women according to a March 14 poll but has struggled against tough teams in recent matches. Coach Marty Berryman believes the team will improve as the season goes forward.
Women’s Coach Jeff Allen and Men’s Coach Jim Sigona both said their teams are ready for the post-season, but know there are tough games ahead. “This might be the toughest regional tournament I have ever seen,” Allen said. “We are going to have to play at the highest level.”
Collin College’s tennis held its annual Super Six, Feb. 15-17, with Texas Wesleyan, Texas A&M University-Texarkana, Jacksonville College, University of Texas-Permian Basin and Ouachita Baptist coming to Plano Campus.
The Cougars and Lady Cougars are just a couple of games out of first place with their final regular season conference games next week. The men’s and women’s teams both defeated Temple College Feb. 13 and split games against McClennan Community College.
