February 11, 2020 – University of Arkansas, home of the Razorbacks, is now the home of the newest Nike Tennis Camp. Presented by the University’s Head Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coaches, the Nike Tennis Camp at the University of Arkansas is running one week of day or overnight camp for girls and boys looking to take their tennis game to new heights.

In her final year at U of H, Steinbock guided the team to a 20-4 overall record, just the program’s seventh 20-win season in over 40 years.
