Congratulations to senior, Jamie Pacenta on being name the athlete of the month for September. Pacenta plays doubles for Fairmont and has been playing on the team for two years. She has grown both as a student and an athlete from her experiences as a varsity athlete. 

“I have learned to push myself and always work hard. It has also helped me to balance school and sports,” Pacenta said. “Keep working hard. It gets tough sometimes, but the feeling of winning and accomplishing your goals will be so rewarding in the end.”

What made you first start playing tennis? I took lessons growing up and decided I wanted to challenge myself and play competitively with Fairmont’s tennis team.

What is one goal for this season? Win more games than last year.

What is your proudest moment as an athlete? Beating Centerville at home on senior night for basketball. Making it to districts my freshman year for basketball.

What has been one of the most challenging things throughout your athletic career? Balancing sports, academics and extracurriculars. Also, continuing to push myself and teammates when we feel we can’t give any more.

Congratulations Jamie and go Birds!
