THREE TENNIS ATHLETES HONORED ON SENIOR DAY

Posted October 5 at 3:04pm

Three seniors were recognized for their contributions to Minisink Valley’s girls tennis program on Wed., Oct. 5.

 

Emma Hogan, who plays second doubles with her partner Becky Kennedy, has shown exceptional leadership on the court, helping Becky, a junior, learn the game quickly.

 

“I’ve been playing tennis with these girls since ninth grade. I pretty much grew up with them, so it’s kind of sad to think this is my last tennis season in Minisink,” Emma said. “But I’m happy about our performance this season. We definitely improved our game. We started out not winning any games, and then we won three in a row.”
