Taking an Early Lead


hile she may never learn to love early morning tennis practices, Brooke McAmis is willing to do what it takes to continue improving her game. And although she may grumble a bit about getting up before the sun in order to practice, she is dedicated to getting in that extra prep time on the court.

"I love working hard and being successful in something I really enjoy," the 18-year-old from Greensboro, NC says.

Ranked 9th in the Southern section, Brooke is seeing the results of her hard work. Still, Brooke committed to working hard to get even better.               Age : (Rank G18s)

"I practice a lot and hit with really good players," she says. That refusal to take the easy way out helps Brooke work toward her goals: improving her ability to finish points at the net and continuing to excel at doubles play. Practicing almost every day at the Starmount Forest Country Club in Greensboro and working with coaches Tom Herb, Richard Moran and Kelly Parker, Brooke has had a chance to steadily improve her skills.

Now, as a high school senior, Brooke is setting her sights on the next level. After graduating high school next spring, she plans to attend the College of Charleston to play tennis and to major in communications.

"I  love working hard and being successful in something I really enjoy" Perhaps one of the keys to Brooke's success is her pre-game meal: chicken wings!
"I like to eat wings before my match, and wings and sweet tea after my match," she confesses.

No doubt that in addition to her lucky pre-game meal, Brooke's focus, dedication, vision and hard work are helping her pave the way to success.
