World Cup tennis player Embry signs with Meridian Community College – The Vicksburg Post




A fondness for and skill at tennis in the Madison Embrys family.

I grew up watching with my grandmother, and (my aunt) used to play in college, the Warren Central senior said. So I feel like I got some of that from (my dad’s) side of the family, and by looking at it a lot as I grew up.

Madison has skillfully continued the tradition for six seasons with the Warren Centrals tennis team, and will carry on for a few more years after signing with Meridian Community College.

Embry signed in November, but only recently celebrated the occasion with a small ceremony in a classroom in Warren Central. She said she wanted to keep it calm, but also admitted to being impressed with the performance.

Incredible. Frankly, it was unreal, she said of drawing. It doesn’t feel quite real and I don’t think it will happen until my first day of practice.

Embrys’s mother, Emily, said her daughter has always shown a natural talent. Madison didn’t play tennis until sixth grade, when St. Aloysius coached Rick Shields who also runs the tennis program for the city

Vicksburg’s Parks and Recreation Department came to her school to introduce the sport to physical education classes.

However, Madison did not immediately rush to court.

When Coach Shields went to elementary schools to teach and get kids interested in tennis, he told her to come out, Emily Embry said. Several weeks passed and Madison had not come out, so he contacted the gym teacher again and said I wanted to contact her parents.

They need to understand that she has a natural ability.

Madison finally went to Halls Ferry Park to play, and has been a regular there ever since, whether for formal tournaments, camps, or just hanging out with friends, as she honed her skills. In 2019, Embry reached the MHSAA Class 6A state tournament in girls’ doubles.

I also came out on the weekends and have been playing ever since, she said. In the summer I play seven days a week from Sunday to Sunday.

Last year, another stubborn coach recruited her to come to Meridian. TJ Carter recruited Embry while he was an assistant at Jones College, then continued on when he took over as Meridians head coach.

When Madison saw the Meridians campus, he made the deal.

When I started touring, I realized there were so many opportunities for me, not only as a tennis player or a student, but also as an individual. I was thrilled to be chosen by him for that place, she said. I want to graduate in criminal law. I want to become a forensic psychologist. I want to go to Ole Miss after Meridian.
