    Carbondale, Ill.- Juniors Amanda Taillefer and Ame Blacketer have been named Co-Captains for the 2006-07 women's tennis season.

    Taillefer is the only returning player from last year's team.

    Blacketer transfered to SIU from Tyler Junior College where she earned All-American singles and doubles honors as a freshman and placed 4th in doubles at individual nationals in her sophomore year.

    Head coach Rene Vidal believes that the team made a good choice in naming Taillefer and Blacketer Co-Captains.

    "Talli and Ames are completely dedicated and prepared to help lead our program on a successful journey," said Vidal."They understand the vision of our program and have demonstrated by their actions a true commitment to achieving that vision.They are two of the best human beings and competitors I've had the privilege to coach.Talli and Ames also serve as highly credible role models for our team as well as friends of the program. We are lucky to have them."
