One-On-One with seniors Amanda and Molly Wickman

How have you changed as a tennis player throughout your time at Pitt? 

Amanda: "I have grown a lot since freshman year. Although we had different coaches, I improved my game tremendously over the years. I am also more vocal and a better leader on the court compared to how I was freshman year."

What has it been like to attend school and play on the same team as your twin sister, Molly?
Amanda: "I'm really glad I went to Pitt with my sister. We are both very competitive, but we also push each other to become better. It's great to have my sister on the same team and also my best friend. 
"We are very close to the same level in tennis, but we are still competitive in anything we do, whether it's tennis or in school. We both work to do better than the other."

How has Coach Santos helped you become a better player? 
Amanda: "Coach has guided me to become an overall better tennis player. He's taught me to become more aggressive and come to the net more. He also taught me how to utilize my strengths, and I'm a much stronger player for it."

How have you managed to be both a successful student and Division I athlete?
Amanda: "Now that I'm a senior, I have learned to manage my time a lot better. You learn to study whenever you have that free time and prepare for tests way in advance. Overall, it's all about learning time management skills in order to balance life as a student-athlete." 

Name your best moment at Pitt?
Amanda:
"I remember sophomore year, I beat Rutgers in the final match, and it was the first time we ever beat them in Pitt history. It was a really cool experience for me."

How have you changed as a tennis player throughout your time at Pitt? 

Molly: "As a freshman, I was a little bit more nervous but after playing in more matches and gaining competition experience, I have learned to go all out in every single match."

Your twin sister, Amanda, mentioned you two share a competitive relationship on the court. What has it been like to attend school and play on the same team as Amanda? 
Molly: "It's all healthy competition between my sister and I, because we push each other throughout the year. We would not be where we are today if we did not have each other on and off the court. The two of us are always in competition whether it's running, lifting, etc. because we always want to outperform one another."

How have you managed to be both a successful student and Division I athlete?
Molly: "It's been tough to manage the life of a student-athlete, because going back and forth plus practicing can take about five hours out of your day. I learned to keep a tight schedule and make sure I know when I'll be studying and when I'll be practicing. The Pitt Athletic Department and our team has kept us in line and makes sure we are on top of our classes. Even with finding a job, I kept on top of it, and I already have a job set for after I graduate. I think working hard on the court and academically allowed me to get the job I have now as a treasury analyst for an offshore drilling company in Houston, Texas.

Name your best moment at Pitt?  
Molly: "Last year, in the ACC tournament, Katherine and I beat Boston College in doubles, or in the beginning of the season when I won my first singles ACC matches against Maryland and Wake Forest. It was very exciting because it was our first year in the ACC. 
"The ACC is more exciting and we get to play some of the best ranked teams, which pushes us to get better and to work toward becoming one of the top teams in the ACC."
