Head Coach Erica Jasper on Misa Bezdickova:
“Misa did not have her best fall on the singles court this past semester, however she showed a ton of resolve and maturity and still managed to have some of the best results of her career in doubles teaming with freshman Lizette Blankers. Despite some tough losses, as a coaching staff, we have a ton of confidence in Misa’s ability to get it done this spring on the singles court. She is a worker and a team player--we will look to her to lead by example this coming spring.”
