Coach Maes' Take: "Hailey did a wonderful job for us in the doubles last year. While we anticipate she will continue to do so, we want to see her contribute in singles play as well. She hits a tremendously heavy ball that can give someone serious problems and she can dominate her opponents this way whenever she sets her mind to it. Hailey is much more disciplined in her practices now that she knows what we expect and it will pay off in the long run. She is a really funny kid and she makes us laugh every day."
