The Mount Vernon High School boys’ tennis team held its awards banquet on Wednesday.
The banquet was a time of celebration for the great year the team had as well as the individual accomplishments that many of the tennis players reached this year.
The team finished with a very strong 17-3 record and placed second in the Big Eight Conference. This team won the eight-team Washington invitational and went on to win their sectional. Mount Vernon eventually lost in the regional but had a very good showing in that matchup with Memorial.
On Wednesday the coaches were able to give out the letters and individual awards to the players that accomplished so much.
Senior Jevin Redman, who played at Number One singles all year long, was awarded the Most Valuable player award. Redman, who was the Big Eight Champion at Number One singles, was also named to the All District and All Conference teams.
Senior Seth Reeves was given the Coaches award Wednesday night. Reeves, who played mainly in doubles play this year, was also named to the Academic All-State honorable mention. The third senior honored Wednesday was Wildcat Number Two singles player Ross Canada. Canada had been a steady force for the boys’ tennis team all year long and was rewarded for his hard work both on and off the court. Canada was named to both the All Conference and All District teams and was also honored with Academic All-State status as well.
The other awards given out were the Most Improved Player award and the Reserve award. This year’s Most Improved player award went to Wildcat Todd Sheffer who played great at Number Three singles. The Reserve award went to sophomore Austin Krizan.
