Senior Olivia Allan is the senior class vice president and has learned to balance school, tennis and the other various extracurriculars she participates in both in and out of school.

Balancing school, tennis and the various other extracurriculars she participates in, senior Olivia Allen is always busy. One of her long-time passions, having played since she was six years old, is a frequent after-school activity. She has played on the Midtown team since ninth grade and has also been a captain for the last two years.

“I really love tennis because it has always been this outlet for me, both physically and mentally,” Allen said. “Sometimes it feels like I have a lot of responsibilities, whether it’s school or other responsibilities, and tennis has kind of always been there.”

Besides tennis, Allen is the Student Government Association (SGA) senior class vice president.

“Being the SGA vice president hasn’t been too much on my plate, but at the same time is a decent responsibility,” Allen said. “Running with Claire [Diemsenior class president] was fun, but now we actually want to do things to make this last year for the senior really fun and enjoyable.”
