Cape Cod Academy girls’ tennis coach Nana Stankova has had an impressive career when she was a youth playing in her native Bulgaria.

When she was 10 years old, she won a Gold Medal competing in singles competition in her home country.

After moving to the Cape about 20 years ago, she has served as an instructor, coaching at Willowbend Country Club and South Cape Resort and Club in Mashpee, Chatham Bars Inn, Mid-Cape Athletic Club in South Yarmouth and Woods Hole Golf and Tennis Club.

Despite a very young squad competing this season for the Seahawks, they have impressed with strong play over the course of the spring.

“I’m super-proud of all of them, they’ve done such a good job,” said Stankova. “My doubles teams have never played tennis before, and they’re doing an amazing job.”

Representing the Cape Cod Academy girls’ tennis team are (front row, from left): Lily Shanahan, Bella Scioletti, and Kelly Wyeth; (back row): Molly Lowery, Megan Morey, coach Nana Stankova, Lydia Stanney, and Kaleigh Howe.

The No. 1 singles player is three-year veteran Lily Shanahan, who is only an eighth-grader and has been No. 1 since she was a sixth-grader.

Fellow eighth-grader Bella Scioletti played two singles, while senior Kelly Wyeth is the No. 3 singles player.

Composing the doubles teams are eighth-grader Megan Morey and freshman Molly Lowery in first doubles, while eighth-grader Kaleigh Howe and sixth-grader Lydia Stanney are two doubles. To date, they have a 5-5 overall record.
