Drew McKown

It’s Cameran Gluskin’s first year at Granite Bay High, and she’s already made an impression on the tennis scene!

Cameran Gluskin has worked so hard to get to where she is today, and it’s paid off – she made the varsity girls’ tennis team as a freshman.

This year, there were a lot of girls who tried out for the Granite Bay High School girls’ tennis team. 

Even though she is young, that didn’t stop her from making a team outside of athletes her age.

“I have been playing tennis since I was 4,” Gluskin said.

Lots of practice and effort have helped her grow throughout the years as a player. 

“I practice six days a week and about three hours a day,” Gluskin said. “I mostly play singles, but in tournaments I sometimes play doubles.”

Just because she has been playing tennis for so long, it didn’t mean she wasn’t nervous for high school tryouts.

“I was definitely a little nervous for tryouts because it’s my first year of high school and I was excited to be on a team, and I am,” Gluskin said.

Not only is it important to be physically tough, but being mentally strong is a big part in being successful at tennis as well.

“One of my main focuses right now is paying really close attention to my mental toughness on and off the court,” Gluskin said.

Her perseverance and determination allowed her to come up with lots of strategies and ways to help her grow and become a better player.

“I have a journal, and I write in it every time I play so I can look back and see what I did and what I didn’t do so I can improve,” Gluskin said.

Gluskin has definitely made a great first impression with the high school and hopes to keep growing as an athlete and as a person.
