RHI Adult Tennis Team Recaps A Great Season on the Courts November 1st, 2011

The RHI Adult tennis team had a very successful summer. Team members, Dawn Crawford, Julie Leimgruber and Lucas Strohmenger competed in 4 Midwest tournaments and Lucas also traveled to St Louis and Hilton Head, SC to compete. Dawn, from Schererville, IN, joined our team this year and finished with a top 10 ranking in the Women’s A division, reaching the finals in Ft. Wayne and the semi’s in Grand Rapids.


Julie has continued to improve and competed in all four Midwest tourneys, reaching the finals in Muncie and then finishing with a huge win, over an opponent who had beaten her all season, in the Midwest Team Cup, in September.


Lucas ended the year with a top 20 ranking in Men’s B divison with consolation draw wins in both Hilton Head and St. Louis. He was also a finalist in the Ft. Wayne tournament. Lucas has only been playing for 2 years and has made significant improvement in a very short time.


We would like to thank the Purdue University Men’s team and the Butler University tennis coach, Jason Suscha for allowing us to use their courts for practices and for hosting tennis clinics during the Spring and Fall.


The RHI adult team practices throughout the winter on alternating Wednesday’s in West Lafayette and Friday’s at the Butler University Bubble. We welcome new players and are gearing up for another great year in 2012!
