Coach’s Outlook: “We are looking to be championship contenders this upcoming season with a great batch of freshmen and returning players. Our top players Giuliana Mardo and Zeah Pivorunas will be joined by junior Anneke Cornelissen, who was one of the top players in Rhode Island in 2017. Miranda Ye ‘23 will look to add to our elite singles lineup. Newcomers Isla Pivorunas '23, Anna Alford '23, and Emily Alford '21 will greatly improve our doubles depth, and will be important contributors. Returning players Ada Bruno, Ellie Feldman '21, Gabi Streisand '20, Michaela Schulman '21 and Ayoung Lee '21 will look to build off of their starting roles last season.” - Coach Marco Amendola (2nd year) 

 

Fun Fact: Only 2 Rhode Island girls tennis players have captured the RIIL Singles Championship in each of their 4 years of high school and both of them are Wheeler graduates. Jane Forman ‘80 was the first to accomplish the feat and Marrisa Alikpala ‘01 was the other.
