In 2016 the Lady Bisons were 14-8, 3-3 in the conference. The 14 wins were the most in the history of the program in a season in the NCAA era.
Three players earned All-ASUN honors. Laura Kent was named to the first team. Hanna Victorsson earned second team honors. Kate Kandyba is a member of the All-Freshman Team.

From July 2006 through 2010 Aid served a tennis director at Ensworth. She oversaw the high school, junior varsity and middle school teams.
She served as head coach for the boys and girls teams and produced winning seasons with both teams each year as well as regular appearances in the TSSAA State Tournament. Aid’s combined overall record was 44-11.

Coach and staff are wonderful
June 5, 2019: This is a great camp. It's hard to find options for younger kids that are not an all day camp. I love that this is a shorter amount of time and they do it early before it gets too hot. The coach and staff are wonderful. Looking forward to doing it again next year!

— Michelle R. Parent
confidence and interest in playing tennis increased
July 17, 2016: My son's confidence and interest in playing tennis increased after this camp. He did a half day camp (he is 9 and a beginner) this year and said he wanted to try a full day camp next year. He really liked Coaches Mario and Dwight. They were very positive and encouraging. One suggestion, can the camp t-shirts be made of the dry-fit material? Since Nike is the sponsor of the camp, it would be great advertisement for the kids to wear Nike shirts made of sleek performance material. Also, it is very hot in Nashville in the summer, so my son would be much more likely to wear a dry-fit shirt while playing tennis in the summer.
— Sonhia H. Parent
