Words by Thomas Ingle | Images by Justin Hunter

Meet Lila Oliver, a Jasper High School senior whose talents extend beyond the sports arena. A two-sport athlete, Lila has been making an impact as a tennis player for Coach Christian Matthews and a swimmer for Coach Katie Oliver.

“Tennis season overall is the best. Coach never lets us call it a team because we are a family,” Lila says. “We spend every day with each other. I like the family aspect.”

Lila is also a proud National Honor Society, Interact Club, and Spanish Club member, and serves as the yearbook editor.

As she awaits her graduation in May 2024, Lila plans to attend Bevil State Community College, then go to Wallace State Community College to become a Dental Hygienist. 

Congratulations, Lila, on your athletic and academic accomplishments. We wish you the best in your future endeavors! WL
