Cierra Gaytan-Leach’s dream of playing tennis on a full-ride scholarship for an NCAA Division I program recently came true.
The Corona del Mar High senior-to-be has verbally committed to play for the University of Texas in 2010.
Several schools, including Arizona State, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Texas A&M, showed interested in Gaytan-Leach, who competed one year, as a sophomore, for the Sea Kings.
But Gaytan-Leach had always hoped for Texas. She says she loves country music. Now she can play it loud with the Longhorns.
