Jaguar Girls Tennis (Assistant Coach) Raelynn Wingert,
“When I first started coaching at Ashwaubenon three years ago, Jayme was the first athlete that I met. Right when I started to get to know her I could tell right away how genuine, hard-working, and what a radiant energy she has. It’s hard for me to even put into words my appreciation and respect for Jayme both as an athlete and as a person, but I know those that know her know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s hard to find players with the resilience and fight that Jayme possesses. She’s got this grit and work ethic about her that can’t be compared. The phrase “give up” sincerely doesn’t exist in her vocabulary. Her teammates respect her and follow her lead without question not only because of her drive and work ethic, but also because of her personality. This is evident by Jayme being a captain of the tennis team again this season. She’s a “gamer” as we’d say, meaning she’ll fight to the end, but more importantly she’s also got a heart of gold. She will drop anything to help out a teammate, friends or family, or even just to do anything to better a cause. Her sincerity, mixed with some fun sarcasm (usually towards me) and humor, makes her an absolute joy to be around. The footsteps Jayme has already and will continue to leave on this program have built such a strong foundation that we will be able to continue to build on for years to come. I couldn’t be more proud of the young lady I’ve seen Jayme grow into throughout her high school career. I know I’m not the only one to feel this way, but I’ll truly miss Jayme being around next year. I couldn’t wish her more luck on her future endeavors after AHS. We are lucky to have such a joy like her around.”
