Ellie Eades Named to SEC Community Service Team

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky women’s tennis junior Ellie Eades has been named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team for the second consecutive year, the conference announced on Thursday.

A native of Floyd’s Knob, Ind., Eades has earned nearly 40 hours of service this academic year. She has volunteered her time with Floyd County High School serving food and with God’s Pantry packing food boxes for underprivileged kids at local elementary schools. She has also volunteered at St. Luke’s Church in Lexington where she has helped with cleaning the church, cleaning up after Christmas services and feeding the homeless through their Loaves and Fishes outreach program.

Eades has also volunteered as a bell ringer with the Salvation Army during the holiday season. She spent time instructing local kids with the Wildcat Tennis Club and at Idle Hour Country Club in Lexington, Ky. The Floyds Knobs, Ind. native has also volunteered with Julius Marks Elementary in Lexington for a school celebration and sorted books with the International Book Project which were shipped overseas so people could learn how to read.

In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the SEC has once again highlighted a Community Service Team for women’s tennis for the 2023-24 season.

All league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men’s and women’s sports being chosen from 1999-2003.
