With several returning players from last year’s roster, the Mehlville girls tennis team is hoping that experience leads to success in 2022.

“We are hopeful to improve on our record from last year,” Mehlville head coach Jill Wojewuczki said. “Returning so many helps that they know what it looks like and what it takes to compete in the conference. We have a great team environment.”

Junior Stefanie Wong is a player to keep an eye on this season in the Panther’s lineup.

“Stefanie worked in the off-season and it has shown” Wojewuczki said. “She has improved all around, but her play at the net stands out.”

Juniors Emily Wilder and Alaina Johnson will see action in Mehlville’s top six singles positions as will sophomore Annabelle Meyer. Other players that could break the team’s top six spots are senior Rachel Trosky as well as juniors Chloe Furman and Lacey Braun.

“Our top six is still being determined,” Wojewuczki said. “I feel confident that Emily, Alaina and Annabelle will return to spots in the top six. The two remaining spots will find new names.”

The Panthers open up the 2022 campaign Saturday, Aug. 27 at the Francis Howell Central Tournament.
