  • Serving up success

    Local tennis star Hilary Flournoy has had many scholarship offers from all around, but she has made her final decision.
    She will be attending Georgia South Western University in Americus, Ga. 

    She loves the college because of its beautiful campus, outstanding academics, and most of all, the tough division II athletic conference the tennis team is in.
