Andrew Meier, Laurel Springs Class of 2022

The time management between school and tennis is really difficult. Just the fact I can accomplish both things at one time is huge. When I was a freshman, I made this goal that I wanted to play Division I. As I went on, I got better and better and better. Signing just felt amazing. IU is the perfect school for me.”
