Kopfer is using the summer to prepare for her third season as the No. 1 singles player on the Eastview girls’ tennis team. The 15-year-old recently won a couple of rounds in a regional USTA tournament in Milwaukee. Here is a closer look at Kopfer:

The best movie I’ve seen in the last year? James Bond’s “Skyfall.”

Three words my friends or teammates might use to describe me: Jordan loves food!

What are your three favorite apps? Instagram; Twitter; Candy Crush.

Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? Athlete Motivation because motivational quotes always help and they never get old, and Eastview athletics because I get instant updates on how our teams are doing in games.

At my first varsity practice, I felt … excited to be a part of the team. Upperclassmen Mariah LaVold, Maddie Paulsen and Paige Brunn immediately included me with kindness and humor.

What part of your game are you working on most this summer? Aggressive play with a strong serve and forehand.

What are your goals for the 2013-14 season? As a captain, I want to help create a close-knit team where we work hard but have fun. Also, going to state will always be a goal.

What is your favorite meal before a match? Jimmy John’s ham sandwich and barbecue chips.

If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be? In South Dakota, players get to play singles and doubles for every team match. I would love that because I could play doubles with my sister.

In 10 years, I hope I’m … finishing up my advanced degree in health/medicine/sports rehab.
