Lyndsay Cooke ’14Major: studio art

Sport: Tennis

Extra points: Athletics office worker

Success on the court: Winning is of course very important, but I really do believe that it is not everything. Knowing that I gave every ounce of energy I had, whatever the score, is pretty satisfying. Two of my siblings play tennis so it helped to always have people to practice with. At Wheaton, my team and coach really push me to be better and they make it all worth it.
Success in the classroom: Giving 100 percent.

The winning combination: Dedication, hard work, determination, and focus are necessary in the classroom and on the court. My biggest challenge is that there are not enough hours in the day for everything I need to get done.
