While most Washington State students spent the last week of November away from Pullman, relaxing at home and enjoying their Thanksgiving break, sophomore tennis standout Savanna Ly-Nguyen had other plans.
Half way across the world in Manila, Philippians, Ly-Nguyen prepared to represent Vietnam at the Southeast Asian Games, Nov. 30-Dec. 10 as a member of the Vietnamese tennis team. This is Ly-Nguyen's second stint at the Southeast Asian Games, also representing Vietnam in Indonesia in 2017.
"My first experience at the Southeast Asian Games was invaluable," said Ly-Nguyen, who joined the Cougar tennis team in January of 2019 and played in the middle of the WSU lineup last season.
