History was made at Liberty County High School Tuesday when Brookelyn Scott became the first tennis player from the school to sign play at the college level.

She signed to play with the Brewton-Parker Barons tennis team.

Scott started playing in the 9th grade and said she was hooked. Working on her game and the basic skills became her obsession, all the while being very aware of her academic responsibilities.

Summers spent going to camps and private lessons made Scott the player she is today. Having a strong family, church and school support system, she was able to make the right decisions about school and her personal life.

Scott can be proud that over the course of her four-year tennis career at Liberty County High she amassed 90 wins and only 20 losses. I imagine if she had started playing at a younger age we would see her playing the world’s best because Scott is a very coachable young lady, giving her all to do whatever task you set before her. It was a pleasure to have been able to coach her, but even more to become part of her family and for that, I am eternally grateful. Goodluck, Brookelyn, in the next step of your future, we’ll keep up with you and perhaps pop up at one of those college matches.

Eichholz is the tennis coach at Liberty County High School.
