MEET NELLIE, COACH OF THE ESCONDIDO HIGH SCHOOL TENNIS TEAM
By Rey Lowenthal
With two decades of coaching to her name, Nellie Langston helms a tennis team as diverse as it is dynamic. Her players, hailing from a tapestry of backgrounds, find in her guidance not just a coach but a catalyst for creating a welcoming space that feels like a second home. Nellie's ambition goes beyond technique and trophies; she fosters a profound team spirit that resonates deeply with her players.
Second Serve's contribution to the team has been nothing short of transformative. By donating the team's first-ever matching uniforms, they've draped the players in not just fabric, but also a mantle of pride and unity. Coach Langston has long understood the power of a uniform; it’s a visual declaration of identity and a symbol of collective strength. With these uniforms, the girls have found their voice, cheering louder and standing taller, bound by a reinforced sense of team spirit.
Coach Langston's gratitude towards Second Serve is profound. Their generosity has allowed her team to don matching apparel, marking a pivotal step in enriching their camaraderie and shared sense of pride. The message these uniforms send is clear and powerful: "We are here, together."
