The Cyclone duo competing at the NJCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championship in Tyler, Texas, ended its run May 6, but the athletes have come away with a positive experience and lessons to take with them for next season
Being on the national stage is never easy, especially for first timers. That didn’t intimidate Brooke Zielke and Jasmine Abunaim, who started their run at the NJCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championship in Tyler, Texas.
Battling into the night and under the lights, the Cyclones fought through some tough matches but came up short against College of Lake County on Oct. 2, losing 3-6. Jasmine Abunaim and Brooke Zielke, however, maintained a perfect record.
Facing their first four-year university this fall (Sept. 11) the Cyclones had their hands full. They may have lost the effort 4-3 to North Central JV but came away with more good experience to help them in conference play.
