Women's Tennis Region 19 Champions

GCC Women's Tennis Region 19 Tournament Champions

October 12-13, 2013 Deptford, NJ

Gloucester County College took home the first NJCAA Region 19 Championship for 2013-14 this weekend. The Roadrunners scored 26 team points to win the Women’s Tennis title for the second consecutive season. Gloucester won 8 out of 9 of the championship flights and will now lead a contingent of Region 19 members to the NJCAA National Tournament October 23-25 at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing, NY.

Gloucester was led by sophomore Terra McHenry who won both the #1 Singles Flight Championship and the #1 Doubles Flight Championship along with partner Vicky Russell. McHenry, a 2012 All-American and the MVP of the 2012 National Tournament, showed her competitive spirit during the tournament winning three matches in three sets along the way. Gloucester Head Coach Brian Rowan commented on her efforts, “I was very happy for Terra to come through the way she did. We had Stephanie Krupa and Kim Santos in the past, but not too many Roadrunners have won the individual region singles championship and the way she did it tells you a lot about her and her willingness to push through tough moments.”

The Region Championship is another fine moment in the season for Gloucester. The Roadrunners went 13-0 during the regular season, won the Garden State Athletic Conference Championship, and the Mercer Invitational Tournament during the season.

Notes: Prior to the start of play on Saturday, Gloucester Athletic Director and Region 19 Women’s Director Ron Case welcomed new teams Bucks CC and Northampton CC to the tournament for the first time.
