Vivian Moultrie an honor graduate at Bryan County High School recently became the first player from BCHS to go on to play collegiate tennis. Moultrie recently signed to play tennis at Albany State University. Moultrie, the No. 1 singles player at BCHS, had other offers but chose Albany State because of its nursing program.“They have a wonderful nursing program there. I’ve always wanted to be in the medical field,” she said. “I’m not sure why. I just know I like helping people.” Moultrie and her family moved to Bryan County prior to the start of the 2013- 2014 school year after she played three years at South Effingham. It was a win-win situation. Moultrie finished 9-1 in No. 1 singles; her younger sister, Keyvona, a junior, went 10-0 in the No. 2 singles slot. Moultrie didn’t start out as a tennis player. She competed in everything from soccer and volleyball and basketball to track and gymnastics before getting into tennis.

“At first I really didn’t like tennis much,” she said. “But I got used to it and, yes, I was better at it than I was at everything else, so there were better opportunities for scholarships.”
