  • Coach Barton Comments: Shari is a genuine - what you see is what you get kind of person, and I really like that quality. She has fine athletic ability and a 'big" game. She's working hard on playing smart tennis and choosing her shots wisely. She has been a real strength to our doubles line-up since joining the team in January two years ago. This could be a real "breakthrough" year for Shari.
