A Brand New Journey

At lunch last Wednesday in the gym, Palisades High girls tennis captain Alex Miller signed her National Letter of Intent with Lewis & Clark in Portland, Oregon and the senior couldn’t be happier with her decision to join the Pioneers, a Division III program.

“I was accepted into quite a few amazing schools and offered a spot on three different teams,” Miller said. “I took a lot of time to think about what I wanted for the next four years and decided after a lesson with my coach that I need tennis in my life.”

Bud Kling called Miller “one of the best captains he’s ever had” in his 40 years as coach of the Dolphins’ program. Miller’s solid doubles play helped the girls win the City Section title in the fall.
