WCC PodCentral: Inside the WCC With the March Tennis Players of the Month

April 17, 2009

With the start of the 2009 WCC Tennis Championships, Inside the WCC caught up with the WCC March Singles Players of the Month, Jenni Heinser from the University of San Francisco and Pepperdine University's Bassam Beidas, and the University of San Diego's Dean Jackson.

Heinser, last year's WCC Player and Freshman of the Year, talked about taking a leadership role on the Dons' squad, what it's like to play with her international teammates, and her expectations for the WCC Championships.

Beidas, who shared the Player of the Month honor with Jackson, talked about playing a demanding schedule, teaming up with countryman Omar Altmann, and how he has assumed a leadership role on the team now that he is an upperclassman. Hear what Jackson has to say about what an honor it is to be the Co-Player of the Month, nearly pulling off two amazing upsets, and having the WCC Championships in his backyard at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego.
