Women’s tennis creates team dynamic in Greencastle, Ind.

Women’s tennis captured seven of eight singles flights and three of four doubles flights at DePauw’s Tiger Fall Invitational last weekend in Greencastle, Ind.
Butler head coach Jason Suscha said he felt the Bulldog freshmen made his team the deepest and most talented at the invitational.
Suscha said he was focused primarily on what his new players would bring to the team dynamic.
“I’m not just looking for depth in talent, but that there’s depth in competitiveness,” he said. “I’m looking for a team dynamic where the kids just play hard.”
Throughout the tournament, the team dynamic Suscha was looking for was established by players at every level.
Senior Natali Jaimes, who went 3-0 at No. 1 singles, said she felt it was important to maintain a relaxed atmosphere, have fun and find a positive outcome in order to get off to a good start.
Sophomore Brittany Far-mer finished 3-0 at No. 5 singles, including an impressive, 6-0, 6-0, victory over University of Indianapolis’ Rachel Barger.
Farmer said her play was “good practice and preparation for the fall and the rest of the season.”
Jaimes said the team cannot become complacent after its first victory.
“Everyone now knows what they need to do to play well in the next tournament,” she said.
