Kamora Helton began playing at LEGACY when she was 4 years old. In the almost 14 years since, Kamora’s continued hard work and dedication to the sport has shown her great success in both high school tennis and tournament play throughout the country. On November 7th, Kamora announced her commitment to continue her tennis career at Providence College! “I was thrilled,” she said, “I had already taken my official visit and developed a great relationship with Coach Orsi and fell in love with the school.” It only took Kamora about a week to make her final decision., she says. “I haven’t done anything to celebrate yet, I have just been continuing to train and compete to better myself as a player.” Kamora also finished her high school tennis career this month, completing a historic season for Episcopal Academy. The girls’ tennis team won the Pennsylvania Independent School State Championship. They also set a single-season school record for the most match wins by a team in Episcopal Academy history!
Kamora will be studying Psychology at Providence. “I’m looking forward to the independence and being able to be a part of a new community and enjoy just the huge school spirit aspect the school brings. I am also excited to learn more about Psychology and to get my degree to be able to become a sports psychologist and help young athletes work through the same struggles that I did as a junior player.” As Kamora enters this new chapter in her life, she reflected back on her time at LEGACY saying “LEGACY was the reason I started playing tennis, LEGACY taught me how to compete but also the community and the relationships that I developed taught me how to build relationships and better myself as a person on and off the court.”
We congratulate Kamora on all her hard work and her incredible accomplishments! We look forward to seeing what she has in store next!
