Personal Statement

Signed NLI:  FLORIDA GULF COAST UNIVERSITY

MY DREAM: to play and contribute to the success of a top 50 ranked college team (in Division 1) and  go to the NCAA tournament, but I am open to what is the best fit for me.

MY HIGH SCHOOL ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

My freshman year : I won the State High School Team AAAA Championship in Georgia  (in doubles).  I was the only freshman starter on a team with 5 seniors.

My sophomore year: I played #1 Singles for my high school team (leading us to a Regional Championship 10-0 in region, our team lost in the round of 16 in the state playoffs).  Named to the 2012 2nd team All County and also featured as Athlete of the Month in the East Cobb Game Day Youth Sports Magazine, May 2012 issue

In USTA tournaments I have seen a marked rise in my level of play starting back in November 2011 through Sept 2012.

In April, at the Clemson Bullfrog, I had multiple wins against several 4 star players and a significant  loss in a third set to the #3 player in the nation, Walker Duncan.

In May, at the Southern Spring Closed, I had 3 wins against 4 star players and lost to a blue chip 10-8 in the third set.

In June

- at the Ga. State Qualifier, I finished in the top 8, with 1 win against a 4-star player, 1 win against a 5-star player (now ranked 34th in the nation (TRN), and 1 loss (in the 3rd set tie breaker) to a Blue chip player.  Please note, during the first three days of this tournament, I played through a lot of wrist pain due to a ganglion cyst, which caused me to retire in the round of 16 in the main.

  - at Southern 16's Championship, I was a doubles quarterfinalist

In July

-at the Columbus National Open I was a doubles quarterfinalist  and was awarded a daily sportsmanship award

-at the Clay Court Super Nationals I made it to the 3rd round of doubles, losing there to the 12th seeds

-at Zonals at Wake Forest I beat two 4-star players and had close losses to a bluechip player and a 5-star player
