Congratulations to this week’s Trojan Athletes of the Week… Sophie Jackson & Kyla Welch… both members of our Trojan Tennis team!
Coach Shane Dilloway shared this about Sophie:
Sophie has dedicated her athletic career to competing for the Trojan tennis team. In her third year playing singles on varsity, Sophie leads the team at #1 singles by displaying a high level of talent for the team, setting the pace for practices, and enthusiastically celebrating the achievements of her teammates. She can best be described as determined and energetic as she is invested in the success of the tennis program. Sophie is a force on the courts.
Coach Dilloway had these words to share about Kyla:
Kyla’s rate of improvement in the tennis program is impressive to say the least. In her first matches on the varsity team this year she has exhibited her tenacious competitive spirit and zeal to enhance her knowledge of the game. Kyla stays calm under pressure, absorbs coaching quickly, and advocates for sportsmanship on and off the court. Following her early successes, Kyla has proven she will be a serious challenge for opponents this season.
Wow… congratulations Kyla & Sophie ! And thank you both for being such amazing Trojan Athletic representatives!
