A vital piece of the C.B. Aycock girls’ tennis team, Laney Reeves has helped the Golden Falcons have another successful season on the court.
The Golden Falcons are currently 9-1 as a team and playing in the No. 3 singles spot. Reeves herself is 9-0 and has won the majority of her matches in straight sets.
Reeves said she feels a little pressure being undefeated, but she finds ways to just take it one match at a time.
“So far, I haven’t lost yet,” Reeves said.
She started taking tennis lessons in the eighth grade and has been playing ever since. She was inspired to play tennis because her sister, Lexi Reeves, who is three years older than her, also played tennis at C.B. Aycock.
“We just started playing together, so that’s what really got me interested,” Reeves said.
Reeves has greatly enjoyed her time playing tennis at C.B. Aycock, and she is sad to see it come to an end, but she made plenty of memories along the way.
In addition to playing tennis, Reeves works at a local Food Lion and is a part of plenty of clubs at C.B. Aycock. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Student 2 Student, Key Club, FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America.
Reeves said it’s challenging balancing sports, school, work, and other various actives, but she has managed to find a balance.
“I’ve got a planner, so I write everything out, but it did feel little overwhelming at first, but if I plan it all out it, it all works together,” Reeves said.
After graduating from C.B. Aycock, Reeves plans to attend Wayne Community College and major in dental hygiene.
