Meg Kowalski Named to SEC Community Service Team

Athens, Ga. – Georgia women’s tennis sophomore Meg Kowalski was named to the SEC Community Service team announced by the conference on Wednesday.
This is the second time Kowalski was named to the Community Service Team in as many years.
Kowalski has been an excellent example of a student athlete that goes above and beyond to do her part in the community. She was a mentor at Barrow Elementary school, where she met weekly with a third grader and spent time with her for an hour a day, was in charge of bobbing for pumpkins with teammate Alee Clayton at Spooky Dawgs, an UGA Athletics event where kids come in Halloween costumes and played games with the athletes and learned the importance of being a good friend and went on hospital visits with The Georgia Way and visited the pediatrics section where she got to hand out goodie bags and meet young kids. She ran Girl Power Day along with Georgia soccer player, Ashley Anderson, where young at-risk girls from the community came to UGA for two hours and did games, team bonding exercises, and learned about how important it is to work hard in school and be active. Before the fifth graders at Barrow Elementary went on a field trip, her and teammate Elena Christofi prepared goodie bags for them to take and went over before they left to hand them out. Finally, she was a guest reader for Read Across America Week and went to Primrose School of Athens and read to a preschool class for the day.
On the court, Kowalski was a perfect 6-0 in singles with an ITA singles ranking of 60 and 5-2 in doubles with an ITA doubles ranking of 54 with Morgan Coppoc. She had reached career highs in both singles and doubles rankings at 52 earlier this season.
