The Joseph family has been producing great tennis players in the CVU area for several years. Head Coach Amy DeGroot knows the family well.
"The whole family would be on the court. There'd be five people on the court." recalls DeGroot. "Two parents and three daughters. Word got around that they're all really good players. But everyone was saying wait until you get Kathy. I would start watching her and she's completely determined. She's got a fire in her eye and they have a hard time getting her off the court. She just loves to play so much."
For Kathy, tennis is for the most part an individual sport. On the court, on her own, the game has taught her lessons she can also use off the court.
"You're out there on your own and it's also helped me set goals and achieve them."
