Despite an injury that kept her sidelined for a year and a half, one Houston County Bear will get the chance to play tennis in college.
Mercer University decided to invest in Roxy Bartz and sign her to a scholarship. She's only lost one match in a HoCo uniform, plus she's been ranked 11th in the state and 71st in the Southern Region.
"My real dream was I wanted to go to a big division one school, but once I tore my ACL, I knew that was farfetched, and I didn't even think Mercer was going to want me still, and they did, so I just have to look past that," she said.
Bartz's coach Craig Jones says she has a really strong serve and he figures she will get right back into the swing of things after rehabbing her knee over the past year.
