How did you first get interested in your sport?

My dad played college tennis for Lewis and Clark State College, so I was introduced to the sport at a young age.  My dad played in various leagues and tournaments that I would go watch.  At a very young age, I started taking lessons at the LCSC Tennis Center.  

What other sports do you enjoy?

I used to play both soccer and basketball, but in the last couple years I decided to focus more on tennis.  Tennis is definitely where my commitment and passion lies.  

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned from high school sports?

The most valuable lesson I have learned from playing high school sports is focusing on competing and enjoying what I am doing, rather than just winning.  

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice I have ever received was to not dwell on the mistakes, but focus on what things I can do differently to have a different outcome.  Kai Fong, LCSC’s tennis coach, gave me this advice along with much more.  

What has been your favorite high school memory so far?

My favorite high school memory so far has been getting to experience state.  Being able to play against high caliber players is a lot of fun.  

What coaches or teachers have made the biggest impact on your athletic career?

My dad has had the biggest impact on my athletic career because he has always been supportive from the beginning, from the fundamentals to the mental aspect of the game.  My dad is able to watch my matches and give feedback for my next steps. 

Which teammates have you really connected with during high school? Why do you enjoy competing with them? 

During my freshman year, I was able to play with Trevor Ritz, who was a senior at the time. Trevor showed me the ropes. He was kind and patient to all my questions. He helped me with the road trips and made sure I was always in the right place at the right time.  .  

Is there anyone in your family who has helped you get to where you are today?

Besides my dad, my mom, who knew very little about tennis, has been a major source of support for me.  She has driven me to an endless amount of practices and tournaments.  She has also guided me with the mental side of the game.  

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Most people don’t know I am artistic.  I love to draw when I am not busy with tennis.      

What would you like to say to all the other Idaho athletes who had their season cut short?

Even though times are tough, keep grinding and improving on your game. Be ready to play when the opportunity comes again.
