Coach Maes’ Take: “Laura Oldham will be an asset for the Cats if she continues her hard work on and off the courts. Held up by a serious back problem last fall, she got stuck behind and that was unfortunate. However, she put in the work after season and this summer and this is already showing a significant difference in her output today. Laura’s energized focus is paying off and I expect great things from her.”
