Tennis Honors

Most Outstanding Player 2015

Tennis Additional

I started playing tennis my freshman year and played at 6th seed. My sophomore year, after having not participated in any lessons or clinics, I returned at 3rd seed. My junior year, I had participated in a couple lessons over the summer and fall, I played at 1st seed. Playing those who had been taking lessons the majority of their lives, my record did not turn out well. Over this past summer, I have participated in many practice matches, lessons, and clinics, hoping to achieve a greater playing ability by the spring of 2016.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Being a leader on a team is easy. You need to play your heart out and set an example of how to stay determined. On my tennis team, I hope that my teammates feel as if I am always a team player and always willing to help with whatever problem occurs. I know my coach also relies on me when there is an issue that occurs because I get along with everyone on my team. By participating in tennis lessons, clinics, camps, and tournaments, I hope to have brought determination and heart to my fellow teammates by encouraging them to get better. Off the field is a different story, there are many more options for becoming a leader. In my life, I strive for academic excellence. I have become a leader in that area so that my friends look to me for help on homework, classwork, and curriculum. I also have become a leader at my school, participating in clubs such as FCA, FBLA, SCA, and NHS. By going to these clubs and living my life in a positive way, I hope to influence others to be the best "them" they may be.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I pursue healthy athletic performance in many ways. However, being a student-athlete means school comes first. Therefore if I am overloaded with homework and I would not be able to get enough sleep if I stayed out playing tennis all day, I will not. Academics come first. In the off-season, I put in a combination of conditioning, lessons, and match-play. Some days are spent doing running or agility training while others are spent focused on ground strokes or serves. The important thing in being a healthy athlete is eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising for your particular sport. I hope to be able to qualify myself for all of these.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I have been involved in community service volunteering since freshman year. I have completed a minimum of 20 hours each year. These efforts are important to me because they teach me responsibility and they make me feel like I am a part of something bigger. Being able to volunteer without reward is actually a reward in itself. The feeling you are left with when helping others is always a wonderful feeling.
