Why Gould Chose Nebraska
"I chose Nebraska because the campus immediately felt like home. I knew it was going to be a place where I could learn, grow, have many opportunities, and create relationships with many great people. The new tennis facility is absolutely amazing, and I am so excited to work with such a great group of girls and coaches."
