After placing third in the 4A Northern Region Girls Singles Bracket, Truckee High girls’ tennis player Andrea Roegiers lost in her first NIAA 4A State Tennis Championship match at Plumas Courts in Reno on Oct. 22.

Roegiers, the No. 3 seed in the Northern Region, lost to the Sunrise Region’s No. 1 seeded player, Dominique Aubrey of Coronado High School. Roegiers won the first game of the match, but she was defeated by Aubrey, 7-5, 6-0.

Roegiers, a senior, was 21-2 in singles play during the 2004 regular season and posted a 4-1 record in the regional tournament. Her combined singles record was 25-4 this season, and she was also 2-0 in doubles play in the regular season. Roegiers advanced to the second round of the Northern Region Tennis Playoffs in 2003, so her invite to state this year was a telltale sign of individual improvement.

Roegiers has applied to five colleges: University of Colorado, Arizona State University, San Diego State, Long Beach State and Chico State. She will inquire about playing tennis for each school, unless she goes to Chico, which doesn’t have a tennis program.

Wherever she goes to college, she should have no trouble finding a sport to play. Roegiers has constructed a diverse background of athletic experience during her years in Truckee.

Roegiers was a fair Far West racer before she started high school, and she has been a ski instructor at Sugar Bowl for the last two years and plans on doing it again this winter. She was on the Truckee High ski team during her freshman and sophomore years.

Roegiers also played forward for the undefeated junior varsity soccer team her freshman year and made the AYSO select team five years running before high school. She also played on a Little League minors baseball team that, except for the very last game, was undefeated all three years.

Before that, she studied gymnastics at Gymanstics Nevada from the age of three to 10, which was a good start for her in sports. She also swam on the Truckee Torpedoes Swim Team for several years.

Sports is not her only interest, as she has also excelled in the arts: She studies acoustic guitar with Tahoe Music Conservatory and studied ballet and other dance forms at Sierra Dance Academy.
