The Salt Lake Swim and Tennis Club has been my “other home” for the past ten years, from beginning groups and challenger tournaments to National Group and national tennis tournaments. I am thankful to train with the most skilled and motivating coaches at one of the best facilities in the country. My participation in National Group, along with my private lessons and workouts, enabled me to compete at the very highest level of junior tennis, and additionally, to fulfill my goal to become a collegiate player. My tennis friends and coaches are like family to me, and I am grateful for the impact they have on my life, as a person and tennis player. As I move on to play tennis for BYU, I know that my foundation was built on lessons I learned at the tennis club.
