Get to know… SJO Tennis Player Lily Rice

We asked SJO Tennis Player Lily Rice three questions. Here are her answers.

Who is your favorite tennis player of all time? 
My favorite tennis player of all time is Serena Williams. She is such an inspiration to girls who might not think tennis is achievable for them.

What is the best part of playing tennis at SJO?
The best part is the camaraderie among my teammates. Everyone is so supportive and I have made amazing friends from this experience.

What is your favorite memory from playing tennis?
My favorite memory is just playing with my friends. One day at practice we were just playing and there was music blasting and it was so fun because there was no stress to it.
