2014 Boys Tennis Banquet Recap

Posted Wed Oct 29th, 2014 11:49:AM

The 2014 Boys Tennis Banquet was a special night.  There were 80 people in attendance at the Hilton Garden Inn and it was a great night which highlighted memorable moments throughout the season. The JV finished their season with a 5-4-1 record with a new JV coach, Jill Cleverdon, leading the way.  The JV coach's award went to Zach Schmidt and Kevin Criley.   The Varsity finished their season with a 4-6 record and finished 7 out of 11 in the Continental league.  They finished 4th place as a team at their regional tournament.   Mitchell Whitten and Robbie LaNasa were chosen for the varsity coach's award.   The highest honor of the night belonged to the RCHS player of the year.  This year the honor was shared by two players.  Joe Bove and Logan Draper shared the honors as the only two players to have played all four years of their high school tennis careers on the varsity squad!  In addition, they were excellent role models to all players for their leadership abilities. Finally, the Continential League head coaches voted the RCHS Tennis Program with the "Sportsmanship Award" for the 2014 season.  This was a huge honor as this shows that we respect our opponents and play the sport with oustanding class and sportsmanship.
