DO YOU HAVE ANY PRE-GAME RITUALS?

KAHLE: I usually eat M&M’s before the game and my teammate Greer [Bireley] and I do a handshake type of thing.

THERIAULT: I try to make it as similar to practice as possible. I stretch the same, eat the same and try to keep a positive mental attitude.

OLDHAM: Our whole team stands in a circle and hype each other up. We talk about what we’re going to do in our game and after, we do a South cheer.

 

WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL?

KAHLE: My older sister is definitely my role model. She’s really good at everything she does and she’s just my best friend.

THERIAULT: My mom [because] she’s always there to motivate and support me.

OLDHAM: My dad [because] he’s always watching my matches and always there helping me out and giving me pointers.

 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE GBS ATHLETES?

KAHLE: I would tell them to take advantage of their time as an athlete at South because it really goes by fast.

THERIAULT: Enjoy the little moments… four years fly by and the memories you make with your teammates last a lifetime.

OLDHAM: If you love your sport, don’t give up. You’re going to win some and lose some but that’s how you grow as an athlete.

 

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE SEASON?

KAHLE: My favorite part of the season was probably playoffs because it was super competitive.

THERIAULT: Our overnight trip to Peoria to run at the state meet course, everyone ran amazing. It bonded the team and set the tone for the rest of the season.

OLDHAM: Making it to state [because] I worked really hard… so making it to state was awesome and a great end to my four years of high school tennis.
