The following scholar-athletes are members of the McMurry University War Hawk women's tennis team.
With the 2018 tennis season just around the corner, the McMurry University women's squad has been picked second in the American Southwest Conference West Division pre-season poll. Additionally, juniors Samantha Ritz (Rowlett, Texas/Rowlett H.S.) and Zayra Gomez (Andrews, Texas/Andrews H.S.) were both named to the pre-season "watch list."
Ritz - playing Flight 3 singles - rolled up the team's best record in singles action in 2017. Ritz went 16-5 individually and included a school-record 14-match winning streak during the campaign. She was a second team All-ASC West selection in singles last year, while also gaining first team All-ASC West in Flight 1 doubles (with partner Bree Brosig) after posting a 12-8 overall record in pairs play.
Gomez was honored as a second team All-ASC West player at Flight 3 doubles as a sophomore. Gomez was 9-11, overall, in doubles. In singles, playing primarily the Flight 4 slot, Gomez went 13-8.
UT-Dallas was picked to win the ASC West Division. UT-Tyler and East Texas Baptist University were the co-favorites in the ASC East poll.
The War Hawks open their 2018 slate of matches on Friday, February 2 at East Texas Baptist University.
