Jessica played tennis this year for the first time and proved how athletic she was by how quickly she learned and how well she played. I wish I could have had her all four years, she may have been amazing! You could just tell she was a leader as the other team members took right to her. She always agreed to do anything I asked of her and was extremely easy to get along with. Unfortunately for her and the team, we had 24 girls on the team this year, which really cut down the amount of time she was able to play matches. When she was asked to play, she put forth her best but also had fun as she played. I think she would be a great match for the Christman Award as she does so much in the community and she is an amazing athlete with a great personality!
