For the second year, Taylor Lewis, Class of 2024, won the gold medal in dominating fashion at the TAPPS State Tennis Tournament. This spring, Taylor reflected on what those State Championships really mean to her and the school.
Taylor is an all-around student-athlete at Lakehill. She has played multiple sports and enjoys competing. Her love for tennis began when she was little. At the age of 12, she began her competitive tennis career. Outside of Lakehill, Taylor plays for Brookhaven Tennis Academy. She has been part of the tennis academy for a little over a year and a half and trains with Dave Anderson.
Last year, coaches and athletes alike were astounded by her abilities as she won match after match through the district tournament and on to the State Tournament. This season was highly anticipated.
“It is so much fun to be part of the team at Lakehill,” said Taylor beaming with pride. Taylor noted the joys of watching teammates compete on the court for the first time, playing athletes from so many different schools, and most importantly representing her school. “Ya know, I won for the school, not just for myself.”
“Taylor is one of those student-athletes who continually makes the athletic department proud,” said Jhoana Cayme-Mosley, Athletic Director. “Taylor not only competes on the court but also works hard in the classroom. She is one that our youngest Warriors can look up to.” When asked about advice for younger student-athletes, Taylor’s response was, “Don’t be afraid to lose. Losing is a learning experience.”
Congratulations to Taylor Lewis, TAPPS State Tennis Champion 2022 and 2023.
