Career: Scout discovered tennis in fifth grade during PE. A competitive soccer player from age five, Scout had found a new passion, motivating her to juggle the two sports (plus, flag football and club basketball) for a year. During seventh grade she decided focus on tennis and, at 13, began taking private lessons twice a week. She competed in her first tournament (14s Open) in the fall of 2007.
Currently: She's developed a training program with the guidance of her high school coach. Although Hawaii is isolated, with few competitive players and tournaments, Scout makes the most of her time and the resources available. She augments hitting and drills with weight training and "game film." She competes in both junior and adult tournaments in Hawaii and, when possible, the mainland.
Since 2009, Scout has played on Hawaii's zone teams: 14s (position: #6), 16s (#1) and 18s (#2). She has also competed nationally in the Easter Bowl (2010), the Summer National Opens (San Diego) in 2010 and 2011 and the Winter Nationals (Scottsdale) in 2011.
2013: Played first singles, finished her senior season undefeated, without dropping a set; finished fourth in the ILH post-season tournament.
2012: Played first singles as a junior; finished third in the ILH post-season tournament and lost in quarter finals of the state tournament to eventual champion.
2011: Played second singles as a sophomore and finished third in the ILH post-season tournament and sixth in the state tournament.
2010: Played second doubles as a freshman, with just two losses; played unseeded in singles in the post-season ILH tournament and was the only freshman from the ILH to earn a singles spot in the state tournament.
Academically: Scout maintains a 3.7 GPA. She played viola in the school orchestra from 5th through 10th grade. Her course work includes honors French and AP Biology. In 9th grade she was one of four students to receive the Biology Excellence Award.
