THE United States of America-based tennis duo has blended in well since joining New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) earlier this year.

Over the past months, the duo in the form of Georjemah Row and Vinda Teally have teamed really well with NMMI’s Bronco Tennis Women’s Team to win many matches as possible in the 2018 Women’s NJCAA National Championships

Row and Teally are currently undertaking three years tennis scholarships at NMMI where they are being coached by former Oceania Tennis Development Officer Dan O’Connell at Bronco Tennis in Roswell, New Mexico.

With the help of the Solomon Islands nationals, Bronco Tennis had registered wins over Tarleton State University, Ottawa University, Mesa Community College, Paradise Valley Community College, Glendale Community College, University of the Southwest, Cowley County Community College, Barton Community College and Iowa Central Community College.

“Our team is really shaping up really nicely and I am happy with how they are performing so far,” said coach O’Connell.

Currently in their freshman year, Row and Teally’s scholarships will lapse after three years but will be extended further if they continue top level performance.
