Tennis - Varsity Girls
About the Program:
Thayer Girls' Varsity Tennis is one of 13 teams in the Independent School League (ISL) and is a member of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) 'Class B' Division. Our comprehensive schedule starts in March and runs through May each spring, and our home matches and practices take place at either our 6 tennis courts on campus or at the Thayer Sports Center, which has 4 outdoor courts and 4 indoor courts. Student-athletes have gone on to play tennis collegiately at schools like Loyola University Maryland, Denison University, Bowdoin College, and Skidmore College to name a few. Head Coach, Sally Goldman, took over the program in 2021 after spending over 20 years as an assistant coach. For any further information, please email Coach Goldman at email@example.com. Go Tigers!
