on April 9, 2019

Jordan GollingerThe Monroe-Woodbury Athletic Director, Lori Hock, would like to announce that Jordan Gollinger is the “Athlete of the Week” for the week ending April 12, 2019 for the Monroe-Woodbury Boys Varsity Tennis team coached by Anita Wilson.

Jordan is a senior and this is his fourth year on the Varsity Tennis team. He is also one of the team captains this year. The regular season has just begun and Jordan has earned the most competitive spot in the team’s lineup this year. He is representing the Crusaders as our first singles player. Jordan’s game has improved once again this year. Coach Wilson notes that she has seen an improvement in his footwork and his coverage of the court.

Jordan has won three of his five matches so far this season.  Jordan persevered during one particular match against Middletown through three sets in extremely windy conditions and succeeded in winning his match. Jordan’s game has evolved over the years. He demonstrates confidence on the court and is not afraid to take chances to win a point. This is an important quality in the game of tennis. In addition, improvement in his speed and agility on the court, backed by his soccer background, has also helped to improve his game.

Overall, Jordan is a hard-working athlete and a dedicated part of the Crusader’s Boys Tennis Team. He has demonstrated some nice leadership qualities as a co-captain this season. He takes initiative to lead the team through warm-ups and footwork drills as well as offering suggestions and encouragement to his teammates.

Congratulations, Jordan!
