Kat had a perfect month on the tennis court. She was 24-0 in dual matches to add to her undefeated season with a record of 30-0 (21-0 in league). The Lady Lions are off to a 5-2 start in league and her dominance gives the team extreme confidence going into every match. Even as a sophomore, she is developing into one of our team leaders and continues to improve each week. The future looks bright for Kat on and off the tennis court.
“After getting to know and coach Enyi in track last spring, I realized right away his maturity and leadership qualities would make a great team captain. He has led our team—not only as our #1 runner, but through bible studies at our team dinners and setting a great example to everyone around him. He works extremely hard, shows up to practice and races with heart. Nothing more a coach can ask for.”
– Coach Adams
