With the end of the regular season just days away and the regional tournament looming, the Greenbrier girls tennis team took time off from its busy schedule to join Katie Krupp at her Wednesday signing ceremony.
Krupp was celebrating her decision to attend Georgia College & State University in the fall.
“I love the area, and the coach is awesome, the team is awesome and they have a good nursing program,” said Krupp. “It’s just the right school for me overall.”
Krupp has been part of a team that has won three regionals and advanced to the state semifinals the past three years. She has helped lead the Lady Wolfpack to a 7-0 start to its 2012 season and hopes to carry that success over at the college level.
“We’ve done so well on our high school team now,” Krupp said. “I definitely hope I can be a good addition to their team there.”
Getting to the top of the pyramid and then having to leave will be bittersweet, though.
“It’s awesome because we’re seniors and we’re top dogs,” Krupp said. “I guess we all feel closer because we have spent the last four years together. It’s a little sad because we won’t be with each other anymore.”
Others will also feel the affects of her departure.
“On and off the court she’s eager to help other players,” said head coach Brittany Jackson. “Her play on the court is outstanding. She’s definitely an asset to the team and we’ll miss her.”
