Success is possible because of you
Women’s Tennis had a fantastic 2017–18 season, both on the court and in the classroom. The Commodores earned their second-consecutive SEC regular season championship, and quickly followed that by claiming the program’s third SEC Tournament Championship. This historic season came to a close with the team competing in the finals of the 2018 NCAA Women’s Tennis Tournament. Astra Sharma and Fernanda Contreras represented Vanderbilt in the NCAA individual tournament, with Contreras advancing to the semifinals. Sharma, Contreras and Christina Rosca were also named to the SEC First Team, while Summer Dvorak and Amanda Meyer were named to the SEC Second Team. Meyer was also named to the All-Freshman Team. The Women’s Tennis program also had seven student-athletes named to the Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll/
Coach Geoff Macdonald expects great things this year. Our student-athletes are working toward success—now they just need you! Make a gift today.

Will my gift to the NCC Excellence Fund for Women’s Tennis apply toward my National Commodore Club benefits? No. You will receive NCC priority points, but you must make a separate gift to the NCC annual fund for priority seating and parking benefits.
