Former Spartan, Alejandra Guerra, has been named as graduate
assistant coach for the women’s tennis program, as announced
by head coach, Jeff Trivette.
“We are very lucky to have Ale come back to our
program,” said Trivette. “She is arguably, one of the
best tennis players ever to put on a Spartan uniform. She has a
high level of experience at the college and pro levels that will be
invaluable to our kids in our practices and matches. I am most
excited about is that we have a former student-athlete returning to
our program, who wants to invest her time and energy into the
success of UNCG tennis.”
