I graduated in early 90s and it was the same then. The women's team had a good coach that tried to help players but she left to play European club tennis. Her replacement was what many schools see as the ideal, an average player who won't make any waves but doesn't help you either. He changed one girl from a take the ball early player to a push. I thought it was isolated but then I heard from a player at the div 1 champion school say that they told her to never go near the net! Maybe it started in 90s, not sure. Try to be true to yourself as much as you can. See if there is some way to make this a positive experience.
How do I get rid of that icon in my post - sorry!
