Girls Tennis Mental Attitude Award Recipients

At the state finals each year, the IHSAA Executive Committee presents a mental attitude award to an outstanding senior participant in the girls tennis state finals tournament. The recipient of this award, who was nominated by her principal and coach, must excel in mental attitude, scholarship, leadership and athletic ability in tennis.  From 1989 to 2013, over $825,000 in college scholarships were presented by Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance to deserving high school students in Indiana.
