Chamberlain tennis standout Nicole Mera will be heading to Florida State University with some extra cash in her pocket.

Mera received notice that she earned a $6,000 ($1,500 each year for four years) scholarship from USTA Serves. The Chiefs No. 1 singles player, who advanced to the state tournament the past two seasons and who was recently honored with the Andres Garcia Memorial Tennis Award, was pleasantly surprised.

In accepting the scholarship, Mera will have to show the USTA that she is a student in good standing at the end of each academic year.

The program also encourages Mera to participate in club tennis, a program she was already looking into since it will allow her to continue to play at a high level, but not with the rigors of a varsity program.
