Class of 1993

In today’s world of “ME FIRST” athletes, Tracy Parker is a throwback to when sports were pure. She was a skilled student athlete in basketball and volleyball at Comstock High School, and exhibited the characteristics of a truly coachable athlete who loved sports. Each time she stepped on the court to compete, it was with heartfelt joy, power, spirit and enthusiasm. On the basketball court or the volleyball court, Tracy’s goal was to create cohesiveness and make everyone around her better. Whether it was a perfectly placed Jump Set for one of her outside hitters to slam a point or a deft no-look bounce pass to a cutting wing player for a hoop, Tracy was always on point, and played both sports with fire and passion. She was selected All-State First Team twice in volleyball, and named MVP of Women’s Varsity Basketball her senior year.  Tracy put in many hours outside the regular volleyball season, playing summer travel volleyball to grow into the competitor that she demanded of herself.  As a setter and point guard, Tracy’s job was to put her teammates in the best possible position to succeed, which she did with great skill. Tracy attacked her opponents and exploited their weaknesses using superior vision, uncanny awareness, and an unwillingness to be beaten.  Volleyball and basketball to Tracy were simply puzzles that needed all of its pieces put into the proper position to create the final finished work of art. The General was an absolute master technician at arranging her pieces time and time again.  She contributed to many championship seasons, most notably helping to win two volleyball state championships. She was a member of the National Honor Society, and recipient of the B’Nai B’rith Female Scholar-Athlete Award. After Comstock High School, she earned a full ride volleyball scholarship to Florida A&M University where she enjoyed a record setting career.  She was named Rookie of the Year in her frosh phenom season, was named conference MVP in her senior season and led her team to two conference championships.  She still holds the top 3 single-season volleyball assist records and holds the overall career record for volleyball assists by a virtually impassable margin.  After shattering overall college records, many of which still stand today, Tracy steamrolled through earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering, graduating Magna Cum Laude, and went on to earn a law degree.  Even today, Tracy still maintains her throwback level of grace, humility and collected spirit that originated from her days as a student athlete at Comstock. – Geneva (Genny) Baker
