NC State Women's Tennis Announces 2013-14 Team Captains
Aug 30, 2013
“We don’t have captains every year,” said Olsen. “We don’t always fill that role and sometimes we don’t have captains. There has to be something specific about a player that makes them very good in that role and we have two in Joelle and Nicole.
“Joelle is a natural leader. She has an extreme passion for her team and her tennis. Her hard work over the last three years has been remarkable and she works very, very hard. Nicole is a voice of the process. I think her maturity and the improvements that she has made make her a natural leader for us.”
Kissell earned her second straight All-ACC nod last season and was also selected to the NCAA Singles Championship for the second time in as many years. Martinez collected 10 singles wins during the 2013 campaign, while also combining for 14 doubles wins in dual-match play with teammate Elisha Hande. The doubles pair owned a team-leading 6-3 mark in ACC doubles matches.
