Christina Tan, Simone Kalhorn, and Jacquelynn Tang leave the Orange as some of the most decorated tennis players in school history.

The three seniors of the Syracuse women’s tennis team may be graduating and moving on to new things, but they will leave behind a legacy of all that they have learned and all that they have taught to the underclassmen.

Simone Kalhorn, Christina Tan, and Jacquelynn Tang have been with the team for four years. They are strong leaders, talented players, and great examples for the rest of the team to follow. Two are captains on this year’s squad.

The Syracuse women's tennis team remained unbeaten at home as it swept Big East rival UConn on Senior Day, 7-0.

Syracuse women’s tennis ended its regular season on a high note Friday, sweeping the University of Connecticut, 7-0. The Orange finished the regular season 16-6 and 8-1 in the Big East.

Though an exciting end to the season, the match was bittersweet as it was the last one for seniors Christina Tan, Jacquelynn Tang, and Simone Kalhorn. Their coaches and fellow teammates honored all three girls in a ceremony before the match.

“This is not an easy program,” SU head coach Luke Jensen said. “These girls really set the tone for the whole rest of the team.”

Freshman Maddie Kobelt has quickly established herself as one of the premier players on the court for Syracuse. She has amassed a 13-4 record at the No. 2 singles spot, and also competes with the No. 1 doubles team.

Talent alone doesn’t make someone a star, though SU freshman tennis player Maddie Kobelt certainly isn’t lacking it. Being a tennis ace, also requires determination, hard work, intelligence, and a positive attitude, all of which Kobelt possesses.

“Maddie is a goofball with a warrior mindset,” Orange head coach Luke Jensen said. “She’s fun to be around but zeroes in on the competition as soon as the match starts.”
