WJBF Scholar Athlete: Westminster’s Kylie Duckworth

Scholar Athlete Award

 There’s not much Kylie Duckworth failed to accomplish during her prep tennis career.

The Westminster senior finished her career as a two-time individual state champion. She went undefeated this season en route to claiming the state title. She also led the Wildcats to a third consecutive team state championship on Tuesday night.

The future Tennessee Volunteer sports a 3.97 GPA, and she said it’s her competitive spirit that has helped her find so much success on and off the court.

“I feel like I have a really strong drive to succeed both in the classroom and on the court,” Duckworth said. “That enables me to lay it all out there and put it all out there on the court.”

“She’s such a great, well-rounded young lady academically and athletically,” Westminster tennis coach, Leisa Tebbs, said. “We’re looking forward to hearing great things about her at Tennessee, and we will greatly miss her at Westminster.”

Duckworth will enroll in the honors program at Tennessee where she plans to major in biochemistry.
