“I am proud of Megan and Kendal,” head coach Rodney Harmon said. “Last year they had a phenomenal year. They won a lot of big matches that was highlighted by their win at the ITA Southeast Regionals. They went to New York and won the national indoors title. They won a number of big dual matches as well. They had a great year and I’m really proud of them.”
Kurey and Woodard are one of three doubles pairings that were named to the team that features the nation’s top student-athletes from tennis programs across the nation.
