Coach Morris on Emily Groeneveld:"Emily had a great run this fall winning nine straight matches to begin her college career. She finished her fall season with a wonderful record of 10-3 in singles and 5-6 in doubles. Emily has a great base with great footwork and a very consistent stroke with solid power on both forehand and backhand. She is working hard, and is very determined. We look for Emily to be a great player for our program in the coming years."
