HIGH POINT, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College women's tennis team was selected to finish 11th in the Conference Carolinas Preseason Coaches' Poll Wednesday afternoon. Mackenzie Langmade, Jaden Acklin and Sandy Allen were named players to watch for the squad this coming season.
Under the leadership of newly appointed Head Coach Lt. Col. Rodger Acklin, the Bobcats will look to take some steps forward after finishing last season 4-13 overall and 1-10 in conference action. One factor that could help LMC this spring will be its experience. Five of the six players currently on the roster have at least one collegiate season under their belt and two have two or more seasons.
Lees-McRae will jump right into conference play when it opens its season Feb. 24 at Converse. That match is slated to get underway at 1 p.m.
