As an athlete, bettering your self as a player can only better your team, and Clinton’s Rejoice Spencer has embodied this principle her senior year.
On Monday, April 16, Rejoice Spencer signed a letter of intent to play tennis at Tuskegee University in in Tuskegee, Alabama.
“I chose Tuskegee University because of its great heritage,” Rejoice said, “and my dad and family all graduated from Tuskegee.”
Spencer added, “Coach (Ernest) Grant is a great coach, and I know his program will better my tennis abilities and further my tennis career.”
“Rejoice has been very aggressive this year,” tennis head coach David Duke said. “She takes control of the net and doesn’t wait on the ball. She’s improved her serve. She does a good job of putting away the ball, and she’s a great teammate. She’s very competitive, comes to practice with a great attitude and gives it her best every day.”
Rejoice has been on the Arrow Tennis team since her seventh-grade year, and has been a varsity starter for three years.
She’s a member of FCA and Mu Alpha Theta, and was selected as Clinton’s 2017 Homecoming Queen.
Rejoice Spencer is the daughter of Joy and Ronovan Spencer.
