Q and A with Aubrey Johnston


Mallory Mong, Staff Writer

When did you first start playing tennis?

8th grade

How do you get prepared for a match by yourself/with your team?

I run a couple laps around the courts and then I hit with someone and practice my serves.

Who is someone that has influenced you in playing tennis?

Mostly my coaches and friends but I really like Angelique Kerber, she’s from Germany and she beat Serena Williams so that’s pretty cool and my coach said I look like her so now she’s like my role model.

What is a goal you have this year for yourself and as a team?

To not lose a singles match because I’m playing JV and then just to have fun with my team and get to know everyone.

How has coming to KCC affected your high school tennis career?

I’ve gotten a lot more practice and I feel like I have more fun doing it since coming [to KCC].

What is something you are looking forward to this year in tennis?

Going along on the trips will be fun this year.

How do you see yourself contributing to the team this year/next year?

Next year I’ll be able to play varsity and we’re going to win state and we’re going to be really good.

What is something your team does well together?  

Laugh, talk, and cheer each other on!
