This Week in the NCAA 2012This week, the inspiring story of Kaleigh Carpenter, a standout tennis player at Berry College in Georgia.

Kaleigh was born without a left arm, and is the only current NCAA tennis player competing with such a condition. But that didn’t stop her from recording a 16-5 singles record and a 15-6 doubles record during her freshman season for the Vikings.

Our Kevin Kugler talks to Kaleigh about being a student-athlete and the player who inspired her to follow her dreams. It’s all in the latest installment of This Week in the NCAA.
