Coach White Says - "As a senior, Jeri will be a great leader on and off the court. Her character and personality will serve as an inspiration for the rest of the squad. Jeri is simply the fastest player on the court I have ever seen. With serve/volley and chip and serve style of play, she brings a dynamic to women’s tennis that is all but lost in these days of groundstroke queens. Jeri is the consummate team player and will do what ever it takes to lead her squad to its best performance."
