SEASON PREVIEW

PLAYER PROFILES

RETURNING PLAYERS The Penn State women’s tennis team returns six players from its 2010-11 roster. Penn State is led by seniors Fernanda Perrotta and Kristen Roth. Perrotta’s strong work ethic led her to an outstanding 2011 season in which she tallied 10 doubles wins and was ranked as high as No. 68 in the ITA Poll with her partner Petra Januskova. According to Denny, it is the intangibles that make Roth the player that she is and is a great force in bringing the team together. Juniors Petra Januskova and Sarah Henderson look to jump into a leadership role as upperclassmen and improve upon successful sophomore campaigns. Januskova was named first-team All-Big Ten and ranked in the ITA poll for most of the year. She led the Nittany Lions with a 14-8 record, including five victories over ranked opponents. Denny describes Henderson as an excellent leader in the sense of her never wavering positivity, whether it’s in practice, competition or conditioning. Sophomores on the Nittany Lion roster include MarieFrederique Bedard and Carmen Sandor. Thanks to Bedard’s fighting attitude and eagerness to learn, she earned seven singles victories in her first season with Penn State, including two wins over Big Ten opponents. According to Denny, “the sky is the limit” for a player like Sandor. As a freshman, she tallied both a three and four match win streak during the season. Last season four of Penn State’s six returning players were named to the ITA All-Academic team. Additionally, this marks the third time in four years Penn State’s team as a whole has made the list. Individual winners must be varsity letter winners and maintain at least a 3.50 GPA. TALENTED NEWCOMERS Although Penn State features no freshmen on its roster, the Nittany Lions boast two transfer students. Senior Nina Sertic comes to Happy Valley from Kansas State University and sophomore Chelsea Utting previously played at Marquette University. As a junior at KSU, Sertic tallied a career-high 14 wins in singles play, including four wins in Big 12 action. She also notched a career-best 18 doubles victories playing primarily in the first doubles slot with four different partners during the 2010-11 season. This fall Sertic has shown greatness in the number one doubles spot, partnering with Januskova to amass a 7-3 record, including a victory over No. 48 Li Xi and Maria Fuccillo of Virginia. In her first collegiate season with Marquette, Utting totaled 6

PENN STATE 2011–12 • WOMEN’S TENNIS

a 35-14 combined singles and doubles record, including a seven match win streak from April 3-15. Utting brings a sense of resilence to the Nittany Lion roster and a can-do attitude that can’t be matched. BUILDING OFF OF THE FALL Several Nittany Lions made great strides during the 2011 Fall season, led by Januskova. Entering the season Januskova was ranked No. 108 in the preseason ITA poll and finished with two individual tournament crowns at the Cissie Leary Invitational and Western Michigan Super Challenge. This marked the second year in a row Januskova won the singles title at the WMU Super Challenge. Additionally, Januskova partnered with Nina Sertic to finish second in the doubles portion of the Cissie Leary Invitational. Januskova finished with a 13-2 singles record - her only two losses came against ranked opponents. Januskova was named Big Ten Athlete of the Week for the week of Sept. 28. The rest of the Nittany Lions have all shown improvement in the fall with players like Bedard, Perrotta and Utting earning several strong victories. Penn State will try to use this positive start in the fall to start the regular season strong. COMPETITIVE SCHEDULE As a member of the Big Ten, the Nittany Lions will continually face some of the toughest competition in the nation. Six members of the Big Ten, including newcoming Nebraska, finished last season in the Top 75 of the ITA rankings. Nine of Penn State’s 22 opponents for the 2012 season finished the season in the ITA Top 75. RECRUITING Penn State continues its outlook on recruiting by finding athletes that are able to succeed on and off the court. “It is imperative that the coaching staff recruit players who have a strong desire to improve and develop their game to the next level,” said Denny. “We are looking for student-athletes who love the challenges of the game and who expect growth in their game. The Penn State family focuses on the complete student-athlete. Our strong academic traditions speak for themselves and we welcome those expectations of recruiting the student-athletes who will uphold our academic and athletic traditions on and off the court. I believe it is a privilege to wear blue and white.”

facility. Vincent Sarni, a retired chairman and chief executive officer of PPG Industries and his wife are tennis enthusiasts. Neither of the Sarnis is a Penn State graduate, although both have been supporters of academic and athletic programs at the University and both have had children attend Penn State. In addition to the gift from the Sarni family, approximately $500,000 in University funding went into the project, which will also provide for student use of the facility.

WHAT DOES SARNI MEAN FOR PENN STATE TENNIS? It means night matches under the stadium lights. Penn State can now schedule evening matches, which are a crowd favorite. The stadium lighting is state of the art. It means tradition. Through a combination of display cases, banners, etc., the Sarni Center will proudly recognize the achievements of past players, NCAA qualifiers, All-Big Ten picks, Academic All-Americans and so on. It means great visibility on campus. Located in the central part of campus and adjacent to the Bigler Sports Fields, Sarni will be a highly visible facility for the entire Penn State community. This will encourage the Penn State faculty, staff and students as well as the centre County community to catch the tennis fever by watching practices and attending matches.

Quoting Coach Dawna Denny “Chelsea is the spark of our team. She is extremely competitive and always the last to leave the court.”

To the players, it means “excitement.” Banners flying high above the stadium court, the beautiful Nittany Mountains and the Bryce Jordan Center as the backdrop and the majestic team clubhouse overlooking the courts. What more could a player ask for in a practice and competition site? Sarni represents a big-time facility in a superb location. THE MAKING OF THE DREAM Vincent and Sandra Sarni started the ball rolling with their gift of $675,000 to the construction of the $2.3 million

THE PENN STATE INDOOR TENNIS CENTER - The Penn State tennis team uses six outdoor Plexi-cushion courts and four indoor Decoturf courts. - The indoor facility, one of the finest in the East, has four courts with an 800-seat elevated gallery, office, pro shop and locker rooms. - The complex is used for matches and team and individual practices. - With the availibility of the indoor courts, the team does not lose valuable practice time or have matches cancelled or postponed.
