Team maintains lofty goals
The varsity girls’ tennis program maintains a focus on lofty goals, whether it is wins over quality opponents or a significant postseason presence. The Summit has won five Miami Valley Conference girls’ tennis titles since 1992, the latest coming in the 2018-2019 season.
Coach Michelle Hellman took over the girls’ varsity program and boys’ junior varsity team in 2017 and also has coached Middle School tennis at The Summit. The New York native started her college career as a member of the Penn State women’s tennis team before playing on the club level and graduating in 1995. In her coaching tenure, which started in 2003, Coach Hellman has led two Florida girls’ doubles teams and two Georgia boys’ varsity teams to state tournaments. Michelle is assisted by Scott McIntosh and Pat Casanas.
