Williams earns USTA award


Throughout these times of difficulty, students found a way to stay strong and remain positive. Each quarter USTA selects players who display outstanding character and performance. Recently, senior Jazzy Williams was awarded this sportsmanship award by USTA.
“I was really surprised when I got it because I didn’t realize I was being a good sport, I was just being myself,” Williams said. “It felt good to have a reminder of what the good times were considering everyone’s situation.”
Willams played tennis since 8th grade and has qualified for state three years in high school. Williams played singles sophomore year and transitioned to doubles junior and senior year. Williams placed 4th junior year in 4A and 1Oth senior year in 5A, so this is another one to set on her past accomplishments.
“It [the award] rekindled the love I have for tennis and helped me reset my goals in what I love. It helped me realize that I should always stay positive and be nice to others even if things are bad in life or on the court,” Williams said.
Williams is an example of how students are succeeding despite the current world situation.
