Haverstick, Williams Nab MAC Century Team Honors
LANCASTER, Pa. – Mary Haverstick '82 and Anne Williams '88 have been named to the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Women's Tennis Century Team announced Tuesday.
Haverstick and Williams are the only two All-American's in F&M women's tennis history, with Haverstick earning the honor as a senior in 1982 and Williams claiming the accolade in each of her final two seasons (1987, 1988). Both are members of the F&M Athletic Hall of Fame. Haverstick was inducted in 1989, while Williams received the nod in 1997.
Haverstick helped put a relatively young program among the elite in the country with breakout junior and senior campaigns. After playing only half of her freshman season and competing as an independent as a sophomore, she returned to collegiate competition her junior year, going undefeated at No. 1 singles in the spring regular season and qualifying for the MAC singles final.
Haverstick was named MAC Singles Player of the Year in 1982 after capturing the MAC individual crown and helping the Diplomats earn a berth into the NCAA Team Championships for the first time ever. She finished with a 39-7 career record in dual matches and a 48-9 overall slate throughout her time in Lancaster.
Williams sits atop the all-time doubles wins list with a career mark of 76-11, and ranks fifth in singles wins at 73-18. She twice earned MAC Doubles Player of the Year honors, teaming with Janet Aramillo '86 in both 1985 and 1986 to win the conference doubles title.
Williams helped pave the way for a new standard of excellence in F&M women's tennis, as she helped lead the team to four straight MAC titles (1985-88) with an overall record of 89-11 – the best four-year stretch in program history – and three NCAA Team Championship appearances, including two trips to the semifinals (1985, 1988). She participated in the NCAA Doubles Championship twice with Amarillo, advancing as far as the quarterfinal round in 1985. She also competed in the NCAA Singles Championship as a junior and senior.
