From the coach: I am nominating Maddie Pynes for Athlete of the Week. Maddie is a senior on our team. She is a team captain. Maddie is an outstanding doubles player, but more than that, Maddie is an outstanding teammate and team leader. She is a strong example of what a Bluejacket should be. She is off to a great start her senior year; she is going to have a very good season.
Favorite thing about sports: Creating relationships with tons of new people every season.
Person who has influenced you: My dad, for always supporting me through all my sports and taking so much time out of his life to help me improve.
How do you prepare for a game or meet?: I try to clear my head of my previous match, win or loss, and focus on my upcoming one.
Highlight of athletic career: Last season with Lauren Kindem, and setting the record wins at first doubles.
Future goals: Making my last season my best season, and then attending Eau Claire to study something I love.
