Tennis Additional

Playing for a tennis college has always been an important dream of mine since I started playing in middle school. I was remarkably gifted in tennis, starting later than the others, and was told to be the best freshman coming up on the varsity tennis team.

Since I have been extreemly busy in other activities, considering my academic achievement and involvement with band and organizations like United Way and BPA, I haven't been able to participate in many Zat or Champs Tournaments. My coach says I play at a superchamp level and my NRTP level is a 5.0. I have won every Zat tournament I have played in with at least 32 entrants in each. I have been very close into getting into the state tournament for individuals, losing to the team who wins the Regionals tournament for mixed doubles both my sophmore year and junior year.

Personal Highlights

I am a high school senior extreemly interested in playing on a competitive college tennis. I have been playing for 5 years and been pretty successful. I play singles and doubles, with some experience in playing mixed doubles. It would be amazing if you checked me out to see if I would fit in your team. Maybe I'm exactly what you need, who knows?
