The Wetherington Chiropractic Clinic Athlete of the Week- Savannah Arts Academy Tennis Player sophomore Sara Putman
For two straight years, the Savannah Arts Academy girl's tennis team has reached the state playoffs. This 2015 season the Lady Panthers took it one step further and reached the Class AAA Elite eight. One reason was because of sophomore Sara Putman, who went 5-0 in Georgia High School Association tournament play. On the year, Sara finished undefeated with a 19-0 record. That’s why she is this week's Wetherington Chiropractic Clinic Athlete of the Week for May 23, 2015.
Sara has an amazing two-year high school record, 37-0. Putman has won the Savannah Morning News Girls Tennis Player of the Year two years in a row. “Sara has a lot of patients; she is focused, and she knows how to control the match she is in," said Head Coach Karin Best. “She is simply amazing. She sets up her points by thinking ahead. She knows how to play the game.” Sara will continue to play this summer through the United States Tennis Association events in her respective age group.
