Hampton Bedeviled

As one can imagine, growing up as a tennis player in the Northwest can limit your options for playing outdoors. Which is partly why Washington's top-ranked junior, Samantha Hampton, has decided to head south for the next four years. The Blue Chip senior from Vancouver, Wash., announced she will head to sunny Tempe to join the Arizona State University women's tennis team as a freshman next fall. Story
