"I am honored to be leading a program that greatly impacted my life as a young woman. Playing tennis for Blackburn helped me realize my own strengths on and off the court, in a way that I know I wouldn't have discovered otherwise. I hope to replicate a similar experience in my own players for years to come. I am most excited to help encourage these young adults to embrace being leaders on and off the court," said Coach Vallero.
