Junior Alaina Nelson, an all-state honorable mention in 2016, enters the count tournament as the front-runner at No. 1 singles, along with nearly every spot for the Marauders.
With a 6-2 record, Nelson moved up to the No. 1 role after going 21-4 as a sophomore No. 2 singles player.
“She’s grown, she’s gotten stronger and her shots are heavy now,” Muterspaugh remarked on Nelson’s game. “Olivia made the natural progression, too. If we’re doing things right, that’s how you want to get things done. I think we have the best singles players in the county.”
Both Nelson and Spicer are defending county champions.
