Elizabeth Fiepke Named Winner of the Carefree Boat Club Rising Star Award
Charlotte Catholic High School sophomore tennis player Elizabeth Fiepke has
been named the first winner of the Carefree Boat Club Rising Star Award. Elizabeth,
the daughter of Tom and Julie Fiepke, is a key member of the Cougars Tennis
Team and a rising star on the courts.
Elizabeth began playing tennis at age 10 and she has become very serious
about her game over the last three years. When Elizabeth isn’t competing for her school, she trains at the Johan
Kriek Tennis Academy here in Charlotte.
After moving to Charlotte from Des Moines, Iowa, Elizabeth earned a starting spot on the Cougars Tennis Team
as a freshman. Elizabeth and her team advanced to the NCHSAA State Semifinals last year and aim to go even
further this year. Elizabeth and her doubles partner, Catie Nelson are already among the top doubles teams in the
state and will contend for the state title.
Inside the classroom, Elizabeth is an Honor Roll student and she is very dedicated to excellence in the classroom.
In addition to her academic work and play on the tennis court, Elizabeth volunteers at the Levine Children’s Hospital
and at the Ronald McDonald House.
Congratulations to Elizabeth Fiepke for being named the first winner of the Carefree Boat Club Rising Star Award.
