Tennis players at Memorial Forest Club

Tennis players at Memorial Forest Club (pictured) trade time in the traditional health-fitness school class for practice time on the courts. These “off-campus health fitness” students receive special permission from the Spring Branch Independent School District to fulfill their required physical education credits in a more focused, non-school environment. Under the direction of tennis professional Katya Morozova, the student practices both before and after school to work on form, footwork, strategy, teamwork, and both singles and doubles matches. Many of the players actively participate in U.S. Tennis Association tournaments. Pictured are (top row, from left) Ting Ting Yao, Jillian Slot, Meena Pak, Coach Morozova, Lauren Spivey, and Caroline Bonner; (bottom row, from left) Danni Hamilton, Conrad Slot, and Madsen Parker. Not pictured: Leah Hwang, Heather Ramm, Claire Kimzey, and Maureen Min.
