Straight Sets— Women’s Tennis wins MIAA Championship

Women’s Tennis Coach, Scott Frew, earned his sixth MIAA Championship in a decade as the Britons’ coach when the team blanked Alma College 9-0 in an outdoor home match on April 26.

The Britons are ranked 11-3 overall, posting an undefeated 8-0 record in MIAA games. Frew indicated that team depth and excellent play by three-time All-MIAA selection Shelley Zamler, Beverly Hills senior, were the keys to this year’s title run.

“Shelley has led the charge, Frew said.” “She was voted team MVP, but it’s been a total team effort. We’ve been ready to practice hard, and play the game hard.”

Next up for the Lady Brits is the MIAA Tournament, beginning on APril 28 at Kalamazoo College. At stake is an NCAA Tournament berth–The top-seeded Britons are matched up with last-place Trine in the first round. If they advance, Albion would face the winner of a match between Calvin College and Saint Mary’s College.

“We have a shot at nationals, and we want to go,” Frew said. “But we have to be ready to play. You can’t look by anyone or take anyone for granted.”
