Commitment Announcement
Spring Signing Week '13: Ware Works Through Injury to BYU
Share:   

An old proverb says that out of something bad comes something good.

Savannah Ware is heading to BYU
Thousand Oaks (California) High senior and now Brigham Young University commit Savannah Ware knows that all too well.

Ware was sidelined for her junior year of high school with a shoulder injury, a time when junior players are catching the eyes of college coaches.

For the top junior tennis player from Southern California, it was a tough time.

"I was lost, I couldn't even go out and hit, and I didn't know what to do."

Ware, always looking for something positive, said the time off ended up refreshing her and giving her an appreciation for the sport many other players her age probably don't have.

It also allowed her to hang out with her friends and do what she calls "normal" things. Ware said she went to dances and other events she never had the time to attend before because she was always training or heading off to a tournament. She also met her current boyfriend and was able attend school like a typical student.

Ware now takes two classes at the school, and the rest of her work is completed independently.

She said she fell off the radar of college coaches, but she has worked hard the last 10 months to get back. She also did something many juniors in her position don't do - play high school tennis.

"It was fun," said Ware. "The girls enjoyed having me out there."
