    Lusher ’21 Grad One of 3 Finalists for USA Today Girls Tennis Player of the Year

    When Lusher 2021 graduate Gavriella Smith won her 5th straight state championship last year (without losing a game), it didn’t go unnoticed by national sports media. In USA Today’s annual High School Sports Awards show, Gavriella was just named one of 3 finalists for Girls Tennis Player of the Year. It’s one of many incredible honors Gavriella will take with her as she begins her first semester at Penn, where she’ll join her brother Zach Smith (Lusher Class of ’19) on the Penn tennis team. You can learn more about the Smith siblings’ local tennis dominance here.
