Fill-in Whoriskey happy to be called up by Lobsters

(Continued)

In June of that year Whoriskey won her first-ever professional title, teaming with Kaitlyn Christin to take the doubles crown at the Mt. Pleasant Women’s Pro Classic by defeating Petra Rampre and Shelby Rogers in the final. She also managed to take home another doubles title at the Ladies Cleveland Open later that month.

Most recently, she won her first Pro Circuit singles title in Hilton Head, S.C. after toppling Elise Mertens over Memorial Day weekend. Whoriskey and partner Sonja Molnar also won the doubles title at the same event.

She also spent about a year-and-a-half playing in Europe and working with a coach before deciding to move back to Massachusetts.

“I wanted to have a home base. It’s nice to literally be at home and practicing with my family,” explained Whoriskey.

Since Whoriskey lives in Sandwich now, she was able to make it up to Manchester in just under two hours.

There’s no word yet on how long her stint with the Lobsters will last, but she plans on enjoying every minute of it.
