“I’m so excited to have Amy joining our staff,” said McKenna. “She had great success as a student-athlete. Being around the Florida State tennis program, Amy had great coaches throughout her time as a player and as a graduate assistant. I think she will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to Lobo tennis, and I’m looking forward to her getting started.”
