LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Dave Ungaro is set to begin his 9th season as girls soccer coach at Faith Christian this fall. This past spring Ungaro was set to begin his first season as the girls tennis coach. This spring would have been the inaugural season for the Eagles. However, year one was over before it even got started. The legacy of the team's two seniors will live on. Faith Christian is next up on our Senior Spotlight. 

"Without those two girls and without their leadership we would not have a girls tennis program at Faith," said Ungaro. 

Those two girls are Abby Adams and Jordan Utermark.

Adams will attend Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. She will major in Worship and Media Arts.

Utermark is headed to Purdue University to study history.

Adams and Utermark helped make history at Faith. Ungaro says the two were mainly responsible in creating a girls tennis program because they wanted to give back to the school that gave them so much. While the graduates never got the chance to play, the circumstance revealed a lot about their character.

"Your heart just goes out for these two seniors. They worked so hard to get a program. They were constantly in our athletic department's ear going, 'We want to build a program at Faith. We want girls tennis at Faith....' and then all of a sudden it gets taken away from them," said Ungaro. "But never once did they complain to me about it. Never once was it a pity-party...They always looked at the positives to it and they always knew they were going to grow from it."
