Rising Louisiana Juniors Micah Elizabeth Mary Pierce - Tuesday, October 31, 2017
By: James B. Ewers Jr. Ed.D.
One of the rising stars in Louisiana Junior Tennis lives in New Orleans. Micah Elizabeth Mary Pierce is 13 years old and started playing tennis when she was 5 years old. Micah is an 8th grade student at the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans and is already a member of the varsity tennis team.
Micah is currently ranked number 2 in the USTA Louisiana Girls 14’s and in December she will be the top ranked girl in the 14’s. She is also currently ranked 43rd in the Southern section of the USTA in the Girls’14’s!
Last year, Serena Williams visited the Newman School and was able to meet Micah and her teammates, which was a huge moment for all the girls! (See picture to the right)
Micah’s future in tennis is extremely bright and she has said recently, "I just love the game”, and we couldn’t agree more with her!
Abby Lee of Baton Rouge, LA won the Girls 12s Sportsmanship Award Day One of the USTA Level 1 Winter National Championships in Tucson, AZ held this December 27-January 2.
