Jackie Wyslak - Student Athlete of the Month - October 2014
Congratulations to Jackie Wyslak earning the MCC Student-Athlete of the Month honor for October. The Harvard HS graduate is a freshman on our Women’s Tennis Team.
Jackie has recently completed her first season with the MCC tennis team. She led the team in wins with 10 on the season. She earned the opportunity to play #4 singles and #1 Doubles. She finished 3rd, playing #4 Singles at the Region IV NJCAA Women’s Tennis Tournament.
Coach Jim Pierscionek states “Jackie is a thoughtful and considerate teammate. She has been a joy to work with, always at practice, on time, prepared to compete. She listens attentively to coaching advice and quickly improved each match. A referee even remarked to me after observing her in play, stating how well she listened and implemented the advice. As coaches we feel blessed to have her part of our program.” She has already begun to work on a practice/off-season improvement plan.
Academically, Jackie has adjusted well to college with high grades and good reports from instructors. She consistently completes her required study hall hours. “I believe Jackie is well on her way to earning MCC Academic Athletic Honors this year. She has made a great transition to college, juggling academics and athletic demands. We love to see local student-athletes being successful here in the classroom and in competition. Jackie has a bright future, and we are thrilled we can be part of it,” adds Athletic Director Karen Wiley.
