Junior tennis player popular with teammates

IUS Horizon

EntemanWEBTrustworthy, loyal and dedicated are several ways friends describe Abby Enteman, business junior.

Enteman is a third-year player for the IUS women’s tennis team and is currently attending IU Southeast on an athletic scholarship.

Enteman started playing tennis when she was in seventh grade and continued through her senior year at Floyd Central High School.

Enteman is not the only one to start playing tennis in seventh grade. Jessica Hartlage, secondary education freshman also started playing at this age.

“It’s nice to be a freshman and have someone there to look up to,” Hartlage said.

Enteman is currently working toward a finance and accounting business degree, and recently joined the accounting club. However, she has not decided what to do after she graduates. Enteman said she does not know where she might be in five years.

Enteman said getting a master’s degree is a possibility, but she would like to see what is out there first.

Enteman is currently in the process of trying to obtain an internship for next year to make sure that she is going in the right direction with her education.

Enteman currently lives in Floyd County and said she does not have any interest in traveling.

“Everyone always talks about how they would love to travel,” Enteman said, “I just want to stay here.”

Lauren Becher, psychology junior and Enteman’s teammate on the tennis team, said Enteman is dedicated to her school work and the team.

“Academically she is really smart and she works hard,” Becher said. “It’s just tennis and study.”

Becher said Enteman is a reliable person who is easy to get along with.

“She is really dedicated, and a friendly person,” Becher said, “she is very trustworthy and a loyal friend.”

Britta Oliver, business junior and member of the tennis team, had nothing but nice things to say about Enteman.

“She would do anything for anybody,” Oliver said. “We can always count on her.”

Currently Enteman is working for the YMCA in Clarksville where she takes care of children in kindergarten through the fifth grade. Enteman starts work at 6:30 each morning at Floyds Knobs Elementary School.

Although she likes working with children, Enteman said she does not want to pursue a teaching degree.
