The University of Texas at Arlington wheelchair tennis team, The Movin’ Mavs hosted the National Wheelchair Tennis Championships this past weekend. This weekend long event brought in some of the best athletes in wheelchair tennis from colleges including UT Arlington, Arizona and Alabama. This was a great step for UTA as it was the first time we held this event on campus. Along the way I meet a very interesting player, Mackenzie Soldan of Alabama. Mackenzie is a Paralympian who competed in the 2012 Paralympic Games. I enjoyed interviewing this young lady and I am sure you will enjoy what she has to say.
