COLORADO SPRINGS – High school is all about planning for your future, on and off the tennis court.

Cheyenne Mountain’s Morgan Hall is headed off to Bowdoin College next year to play tennis. And also set herself up for, you know, the future.

“I want to do political science and it’s got a really good program for that,” Hall said. (I want to) eventually go to law school and it’s really good at setting you up for that.” 

So have she ruled out a run for presidency?

“I mean that would be cool… I’m not saying I’ll do it but it’s possible,” she said with a smile.

Before all of that, she has her sights set on a state title. The Indians’ #1 Singles player has finished runner-up the last three years at the state tournament in Pueblo. She heads to the 4A regional tournament with one loss on the season, to a girl out of her classification.

“Being a senior, it has definitely helped me just get to the routine of it and I got a lot of confidence when it comes to that,” Hall said. “I mean I feel like I have had a good season. I had some great matches .I feel like I played well so I’m I’m pretty confident and I feel good about my game. I think I’ve done what I could do to get there.”

A competitive person by nature, Hall picked up a racket with her older sister at the Country Club of Colorado Springs and when she isn’t thinking about becoming a criminal defense attorney, she is overpowering other girls on the court.

“Competition is really good,” Hall said. “I really like the individual sports. I’ve always been a super competitive person so I kind of like just being out there.

I’m not trying to put too much pressure on myself, I’m just looking to go out there and play the best that I can play and see what I can do.”

But back to the presidential thing… is that the plan?

“Never say never.”
