Great article on the Miami Herald on the Lady Canes!
UM Women's Tennis Team Won't Back Down
Miami will play North Florida (16-4) a week from Friday at 11 a.m. The other first-round match at UM’s Neil Schiff Center will feature South Carolina (13-11) and Purdue (17-5) at 2 p.m. The winners will play May 11 at 1 p.m. Every round of the 64-team NCAA tournament is single elimination.
The Canes have advanced out of regionals and to the Sweet 16 for seven consecutive years, and they have gone to the elite eight four straight years.
But some things are a bit different this season. The Canes are coming off their first ACC title, and their No. 6 national seeding matches the 2009 team for the highest in program history.
Canes coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews, who has directed super talents such as NCAA champ Audra Cohen, former No. 1 national seed Megan Bradley and All-American Bianca Eichkorn, loves her current team.
“I think this is probably the best team I’ve ever coached,” Yaroshuk-Tews said. “We’ve had some amazing players in the past. But top to bottom, this is the best unit.”
Yaroshuk-Tews is also thrilled that the Canes have no seniors and should be able to grow together and improve during the next couple of years.
