Tom Drabczyk, Jr. Ohio Wesleyan’s new head tennis coach said his job has been a process.
“OWU has had great tradition in tennis, we are building the culture necessary to grow the program moving forward and bring us back to the glory days,” Drabczyk said.
Junior Whitney Lonnemann said Drabczyk has been an asset to the team.
“Our coach this year is pushing us harder and doing everything he can so that we improve,” Lonnemann said. “He is investing a lot of his time and has helped me improve my game.”
Lonnemann said this year the women’s team has a deeper bond.
“My goal for this year is to improve our overall record from last year as well as move up in the NCAC rankings,” Lonnemann said. “Personally, I am working on improving my mentality during matches because that is just as important as the strokes and technique.”
Drabcyzk said he is impressed with how the teams have adapted and improved throughout the season.
Senior Rich Karban said the beginning of the season was a little rough for him, but seems to be improving. He said he is excited to finish his last season strong and hopes to make the conference tournament.
