  • Tara has been a coaches dream since she joined the team two years ago. She always works very hard on the court, as well as in strength and condition training. She has improved at a very high rate on a monthly basis and has taken another big step this year developing confidence in her net game. She is always there to be counted on and she often has good stories to tell. I expect that she will challenge for the top win loss percentage on the team this year in singles.
