Video: Gow Wrapping Up Career In Milwaukee
April 20, 2012
Megan Gow is seeing her collegiate tennis career wind down. The lone senior on this year's University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee roster is playing her final home matches this weekend.
She has struggled with injuries over the last two years but has still won 29 singles matches and 27 doubles contests in her career entering this weekend.
Gow and the Panthers (12-8, 5-2 Horizon) wrap up the regular season Saturday at 4:30 p.m. against Detroit at LeClub.
This season, she missed the fall campaign but has fought back to play in three singles matches and 11 doubles contests this spring. She is also a team captain this year.
Gow says it is hard to believe her career is nearly over.
"It is a little nerve-racking. I've been playing tennis since I was 10 or 12 years old and to have it coming to an end is kind of bittersweet. I'm kind of excited to start the real world but it's going to be kind of sad."
As it turns out, Gow's senior season just happens to be one of the best team seasons in school history. Entering play this week, UWM has set a school record for league wins and is within striking distance of the school record for overall wins.
"It's been a great way to finish, especially being a senior," Gow said. "It's something that I'll always remember."
