"She very successful in everything that she does" said West Lauderdale tennis coach Amy Fairchild. "She's good. I've taught her in the classroom. I've taught her on the court. Everything she picks up on it real easy. She's real good at pretty much everything that she does."

"I'm just thrilled to have a player like her to be on the team" Fairchild said. "It's a great example for the other players that we have a high standard here. We want the best, and she's definitely one of the best ones out there."
