TENNIS MEDIA GUIDE 2013 SEASON OUTLOOK WITH HEAD COACH DANIELLE STEINBERG

Talk about how it feels to be in your first season as head coach here at McNeese State

What are the team’s strength and some things you would like to improve on this year?

I feel very fortunate for this amazing opportunity to build and lead the McNeese Tennis team. We have a great athletic department, filled with young and ambitious personal, and as a young coach, this motivates and pushes me to work even harder; I am very proud to be a part of McNeese State.

I think one of our strengths would be that we have a “chip on our shoulder” and are hungry for success. We worked so hard this past fall to improve on every aspect of our game and the girls are going to want to prove something, either to me, their competition, or mostly to themselves. They know they are worth more than they showed last year and they will be hungry to prove it.

We constantly feel the support from our community as everyone is excited and eager to see us do well. The support the community has for the tennis team is very unique and does not exist in many programs in the country. It did not take long for me to fall in love with the Lake Charles community.

One of the things I value the most and try to infuse in all my players is the “never say die” attitude. They know I expect them to fight for every ball and every point and walk around with their head held high. This is something we always want to improve on and one of the things I am looking for to see this coming spring season

What are the team goals this season? What is the team’s approach to the 2013 season? The team is going through a rebuilding process, which is a marathon and not a sprint. Our first and main goal for this year was and is to change the standards and culture of the program. We wanted to instill a culture of hard work, heart, and fight at all times while elevating all standards in practice, competition, and recruiting. The team embraced the new standards and we are definitely heading in the right direction. Having said that, we are still competitive and we still want to win tennis matches. Qualifying for the Southland Conference tournament is definitely one of our tangible goals for the year.

McNeeseSports.com

Work hard, put your heart into it, and fight for every ball and every point. I want them to be proud of their team, of what they represent, of McNeese. I always tell the girls, if you went out there and gave everything you have that day, but really everything you have, then that’s all I can ask for. If the other player played better that day, good for her; but they will get off the court knowing they left everything on it.

TENNIS MEDIA GUIDE

Danielle Steinberg Head Coach · 1st Season University of Arizona, 2009

Danielle Steinberg begins her head coaching career after being named as the seventh head coach for McNeese State women’s tennis. Steinberg comes to McNeese with impressive accolades that will help the Cowgirl tennis program rise to new levels. Steinberg’s knowledge of player development and recruiting is what drives her to be better in every aspect of the game. She believes in complete dedication which translates into spending a lot of time on the court with each student-athlete. Prior to coming to McNeese, Steinberg served as an assistant head coach for Wichita State from 2010-2012. In her first year, Steinberg was met with the challenge of working with six freshmen. With four of the freshmen in their strong starting lineup, the Shockers dominated the Missouri Valley Conference going undefeated in regular season and conference tournament play in 2011 and 2012 and advancing to the NCAA tournament both years. She also coached 11 Missouri Valley Conference individual champions while with the Shockers. While at Wichita State, Steinberg gained recognition by her peers when she received the opportunity to coach Romina Oprandi in the WTA tour. With Steinberg’s coaching, Oprandi advanced to the third round of the Australian Open after kniocking off a Top-10 WTA player. Steinberg also played a vital role in improving Oprandi’s #88 world ranking to #61. Before assuming her position at Wichita State, Steinberg began her coaching career at the University of Arizona, her alma mater. She served as a student-assistant where she held plan and conducted practice and conditioning sessions as well as assisted with administrative duties such as recruiting and team travel.

Nancy Hank Tennis Center

TENNIS MEDIA GUIDE

The McNeese women’s tennis team plays all its matches at the Nancy Hank Tennis Center. The complex consists of eight all-weather courts, which were resurfaced in the summer of 2012, and are located just north of the Student Recreation Center on the main campus. The complex is run in conjunction with the Student Recreation Center at McNeese. Four of the courts are lighted for play at night. Prior to the 2012 season, canopies were installed over bleachers that are between both sets of courts. The complex was renamed the Nancy Hank Tennis center on June 14, 2010 in memory of the late Nancy Hank who was an avid tennis player and fan who took up the game in the early 1970’s. She was born in Galesville, WI and attended college at the University of Dubuque in Iowa. She was married to Harry Hank for 35 years and spent most of her adult life in Lake Charles.

The center is a great venue that is used for a variety of local, regional, and state-wide tournaments and clinics. The tennis complex and McNeese hosted the 2004 Southland Conference tennis tournament, in which the Cowgirls advanced to the championship match for the first time in school history. In 2007, the Cowgirls hosted Lamar in the highest attended match in school history. The center is open to the public at night.
