Our very own Jayci Goldsmith has signed to play for Texas A&M on a full ride scholarship!
Jayci started playing tennis when she was 9 years old at the Polo Tennis Club. She has worked endless hours, sacrificed her weekends, pushed herself to her limits and never quit fighting. She is proof that if you work hard enough and continue to love the game you can accomplish anything.
Goldsmith is ranked the 10th best recruit in the nation according to TennisRecruiting.net (TRN), and is a blue chip player, the highest rating bestowed by TRN.
Goldsmith is familiar with Texas A&M’s George P. Mitchell Center as she won the 2017 Texas high school Class 5A state singles championship at the facility in May to become the first girls singles champion in Dripping Springs High School history. This past summer, the lefty also won the Texas Super Champs in Houston, won the Texas Grand Slam consolation bracket, went 3-1 at the USTA National Team Championships and reached the consolation quarterfinals of the USTA National Champions in San Diego after going on an eight-match winning streak. Rated the third best recruit in Texas, Goldsmith boasts a 51-12 overall record in junior tournaments, including a 15-8 ledger against TRN’s blue chip players and 20-3 against five-star recruits.
“Jayci Goldsmith is a top American, blue chip recruit and comes from right down the road in Dripping Springs, Texas,” Weaver said. “Jayci is a lefty with a very aggressive style of play. As her junior record shows, she plays her best tennis in the big matches, which is ultimately what it all comes down to.”
Congratulations to Jayci Goldsmith!
