Dress for success

I am somewhat mystified by the announcement that only one of the tennis girls, junior Jennifer Sherfield, has been voted as a princess candidate for this year’s Homecoming. I have several girls on this year’s team that, in my mind, qualify for such an honor.

What is more princess-like than a girl hitting a passing shot down the line? Or what is more beautiful than one of the tennis girls hitting a high topspin, second serve to her opponent’s backhand?

Or the smile she flashes to the crowd after an over-head slam that hits into the opponent’s court and goes over the back fence?

Now, I do not want to take anything away from the other girls on campus but, as we all know, the homecoming queen has been a tennis player the last three out of four years.

Last year it was Erin Elmore and, two years ago, it was Hillary Kell. Two years before that, it was Samantha Kimball. The girls’ tennis team has placed a lot of hope on Jennifer. She is a beautiful girl with a wonderful personality.

My only concern is that during the Sept. 14 match against Caruthers, I noticed that the nail polish on Sherfield’s right hand did not match the color of the grip on her racket. I pointed this out to her during her match and she assured me that she would take care of it as soon as possible.

Once the color coordination problem with Jennifer’s racket is taken care of, I believe her name will be called Princess at Homecoming on Oct. 6.
