Scholar Athlete of the Week
from Eyewitness Sports Online


Student: Stephanie Fox
School: Cabell Midland
Primary Sport: Tennis

The end to her high school career didn't go as planned, but it was one to remember for Cabell Midland's Stephanie Fox.

"High school state title is, I mean I really wanted to win it. But I'm excited for college tennis." says Fox.

Fox is the only girl to compete in the triple a title match all four years in high school, but despite not bringing home the trophy, she is proud of what she has accomplished.

"I've had pretty good wins to get to the finals and I play a little tight, but it happens to all of us" Fox said.

Her career is not done yet, Fox will take her talents to Kentucky next spring to take on top notch competition.

"I'm so excited to be a Wildcat. I think I go at the end of August."

Fox carries a 4.3 GPA, proving she's just as good in the classroom, as on the hard court.

"Its not all about tennis, there's a life after college tennis so you got to keep your grades up."

Even with an already impressive resume, Fox feels she still has a lot to accomplish down the road.

"High school is over, high school tennis is over. I'm just looking forward to college and college tennis now."
