“Our No. 1 singles player is back and our No. 3 singles player is back, as are three of our doubles players,” Gilman said. “So we have five returning players, as well as three newcomers who have never played before.”

Team unity and focus was the strength of a largely inexperienced team last year, something that only promises to be improved this season.
