The FHC girls varsity tennis team is coming off of a 5th place finish at states with a lineup full of veteran seniors last year. They graduated 6 seniors and look to have a lot of new faces in the rotation this season. Head Coach Dan Bolhouse is optimistic about the future of the program.

a�?This new group is not as experienced,a�? said Bolhouse, who spends time coaching the boys team in the fall. a�?They all work very hard and are extremely coachable.a�?

Bolhouse thinks one thing that will separate his team from others is its responsibility and willingness to improve.

a�?I can always count on all of them to show up to practice ready to work,a�? Bolhouse said.

The Rangers arena��t the only team destined for a solid season, and their region is loaded with top-tier teams. The defending state champions and state runner-ups in East Grand Rapids and Forest Hills Northern look to remain atop the region.A�A few of the key players from last season that will be missed include the 1 doubles pairing of Alexis Bonner and Molly Wiener. Katie Knister at 1 singles is also a tremendous loss for the Rangers. To fill in the gap at 1 singles will be senior captain Kaitlyn Fox. Another key player who will have to step up in her sophomore season is Mandy Ehrlich.

Bolhouse has a few main goals for the season that will be on the front of the players’ minds as they head into the season.

a�?Ita��s been a long time since we have beat FHN to win the conference title,a�? Bolhouse said. a�?If we play like we are capable of I think we can be in the top three in the state.a�?

With this young of a team, Bolhouse believes the room for improvement is great.

a�?With this group of girls what you see today and what you see in June will be two completely different teams,a�? Bolhouse said. a�?Thata��s always my goal as a coach: I want to play my best at the end of the year when it matters.a�?
