Carli Capestany

Hope College’s Carli Capestany has been selected the MIAA Women’s Tennis Player of the Week for meets played through April 26. 

The senior from Hudsonville, Michigan (Hudsonville HS), tied a Hope single-season record for doubles victories while teaming up with sophomore Nancy Benda of Birmingham, Michigan (Seaholm HS), for an 8-6 win at No. 1 doubles over Trine last week as the Flying Dutch clinched an outright league championship.

Capestany now has a 24-5 record in doubles this season and has tied the school record for doubles wins in a single season.

Capestany also had a straight-set win at No. 2 singles against Trine 6-1, 6-3, to improve her singles record for the season to 20-5. 

Capestany is being honored as MIAA Player of the Week for the first time this season and third time in her career.
