New Coach Leading Milford Girls Tennis

With 31 athletes and a new head coach, the Milford High girls tennis team is focused on improving this season after winning just one match a year ago.
"We want to improve the best we can, we have a lot of room to go up," said head coach Rosemary Talbot, who joined the team after taking Hopedale to a state final. "Even if it's just improving the girls individual scores, we will try to get more points in matches."
Talbot has been playing tennis since she was four years old and competing in high school for Hopedale. Now that she is with the Scarlet Hawks, she wants to make the program more competitive. "I would like to bring the team to a different level," she said. "A lot of the girls before joined the team for the social aspect, but I want to bring us to the level of being a more competitive team."
Ashlyn Oliveri returns as the Scarlet Hawks' top singles player and as a team captain. "She is a pretty good leader," Talbot said. "She is quiet, but she leads by example and always shows she is working hard."
Juliana France is the team's number two singles player and another strong competitor. Olivia Marshall has also stood out for his effort. "She is a determined player, she will run around for every ball," Talbot said. "If there is ball going wide, she is going to try to get to it as fast as she can."
Milford is experimenting with its doubles lineup, Talbot said. Caroline Middlecoat is a "strong doubles player," her coach said, noting Middlecoat's net game is stronger than the player herself thinks.
Senior Chris Prado is another strong player and leader. "She is always trying to motivate the team and keep the girls focused," Talbot said. "She is a great kid to have on the team."
Talbot, who works as a learning aide at Milford High, played field hockey in college at Framingham State and coaches that sport as an assistant at Nipmuc Regional High School. She said she has been impressed by the overall effort so far and the number of players who elected to join the program this year.
"It's a pretty big team," Talbot said. "We have a lot of girls who work really hard and they are trying to improve their skills as best they can."
