2015 USTA North Carolina League Captain of the Year
GRETA would like to congratulate Jenna Lay, the USTA League Captain of the Year.
Jenna began playing league tennis about a decade ago, and it didn’t take long for her to step up and captain her first team. Since that first experience captaining, she’s been hooked ever since. Eventually one team led to two, two led to three. This year Jenna captained FIVE teams. She does a tremendous job organizing practices, mixers and matches. She is constantly in touch with her players, and she always has a backup plan.
One of Jenna’s greatest qualities is her ability to stay positive. Win or lose, she’s always there to support her teammates and encourage everyone to keep having fun.
While captaining five teams, Jenna is also a mother of two and a fulltime elementary school teacher. She balances all this with her captaining duties and goes above and beyond.
We are so thankful for all of our captains in the Piedmont Leagues. So proud to have Jenna Lay represent the Piedmont and receive this well deserved award.
