Garris began her journey at SJS as a three-year-old in preschool and continued her SJS education through eighth grade. Her fondest memory of her time at the school is participating in tennis every year, starting in kindergarten.  

“Seeing our team accomplishments on banners hanging in the SJS gym makes me so proud to have been a part of the St. James Tennis Team over the years,” said Garris. “During my time at SJS, I had plenty of opportunities to grow as an athlete, but most importantly, to continue my Catholic education.”

After graduation from SJS in 2019, Garris played varsity tennis for Elizabethtown High School. Garris attributed her current opportunity to play Division I tennis at Bellarmine to her extensive athletic background as a student-athlete at SJS.
