Sara Myers of Knoxville Catholic High School, the oldest daughter of Knick and Dr. Stephanie Myers, committed to play tennis at Berry College in Rome, Ga.
Sara graduated with honors from KCHS on May 20. In addition to being a eucharistic minister, a member of student council, a National Merit Commended Scholar, and the president/founder of several clubs, Sara is a two-star nationally ranked junior tennis player who had a goal to play tennis at the next level. At Berry, she has been admitted into the Berry Honors College and plans to double major in math and Spanish while pursuing her pre-medical school requirements.
Sara started playing competitive tennis in the spring of her eighth-grade year at St. John Neumann School in Farragut. Two years later, during Sara’s sophomore year, she won the Tennessee District and Regional Individual Singles Championships and made it to the state quarterfinals, which was only a precursor to what would follow.
During Sara’s junior year, the KCHS girls tennis team won the program’s first-ever state championship.
Sara’s senior year proved just as special, as the KCHS girls tennis team won the state championship for the second year in a row this spring.
