I agree with that.
But if the dream....for whatever reason.....is to play low D1 tennis, then who are non-family members to argue?
I'd say taking all AP courses as a sophomore is an unusual and special academic accomplishment. So I would conclude that there is room "to give" a little on the academic side without compromising college entrance possibilities to schools such as UConn and SLU (St. Louis?)
