Quote of the Day
“Nothing in the world will take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” ---Calvin Coolidge

Playing varsity tennis on the Prairie School of Racine
girl’s team is no easy feat when you’re just a freshman, but that’s exactly
what Camille Cruise did this past fall. Cruise, whose older brother Toussaint was
also part of MTEF’s High Performance TEAM program, started the season at No. 4
singles, then worked her way up to the No. 3 spot right before the conference
Cruise said her experience playing on the varsity team was
one of the best she’s had as an athlete.
