Girls Varsity Tennis · Couch to Sign with South Carolina on Friday


Senior Kendall Couch will sign her commitment letter this Friday, November 16th, in the Dining Commons with the Women’s Tennis program at the University of South Carolina!


Couch, the 2-time Region Tennis Player of the Year, helped lead the Highlanders to consecutive region championships and SCISA AAA State Semifinal appearances in 2017 and 2018, and earned All-State nods in both seasons.  In addition to her on-court prowess, Couch also earned National Merit Commended Scholar honors this fall, as she tested among the nation’s top 3% on the PSAT.

Kendall joins the Gamecock program, becoming the fourth Highlander to head to South Carolina over the previous five years, joining A’ja Wilson (’14), Savannah Hillmeyer (’16), and Maryah Nasir (’18).  She is certainly familiar with Gamecock Athletics, as her father Trip serves as the Director of Player Development for the South Carolina baseball program.

Friday’s ceremony will begin at 12:45PM, where the Heathwood community is invited to share in the celebration — make your plans to join us!
