South Point High recognizes its Tennis Team Seniors
Dharmin Patel: Dharmin was a three year starter for the Boys Tennis Team. He excelled in both singles and doubles. His hard work and dedication led to him earning the number one spot in singles by his Senior year and a regional birth in Doubles last year as a Junior. He might not have been the biggest in stature but he had one of the biggest hearts on the team. Dharmin was selected All-Conference his Junior year and will be attending NC State University this fall.
Grayson Dunbar: Grayson played three years for South Point tennis. When his Senior year rolled around, he was our number two singles player. As a Junior he was in our top six and also made it to Regionals. Grayson made everybody around him better. His competitive spirit was witnessed every match and every practice. He was one of the leaders on our team. Grayson will be attending The University of South Carolina this fall.
Will Jurchak: Will was a three starter for the Boys Tennis Team. Each year he got better and better due to his work ethic and love for the game. Will found ways to pester his opponents and beat guys that were probably more skilled. He always went into a match expecting to win and very rarely was proven wrong. Over the past three seasons Will accumulated more wins than anyone on the team and was an All-Conference Selection his Junior year and also Team MVP. Will will attend Wofford College this fall.
Noah James: Noah was a four year starter for the Boys Tennis Team. He had a variety of shots that he used to attack his opponents. He was a benchmark that other players on the team used to gauge their improvement as he also received their best game. Noah was an All-Conference Selection his Junior year. Noah will be attending The University of North Carolina at Charlotte in the fall.
Tyler Miller: Tyler was a part of the team for the past three seasons. He knew his role and always brought energy to practice each and every day. He always encouraged his team mates and pushed them to succeed. He is a beast at the net. By his senior year Tyler showed growth not only in his tennis game but also as a teammate and leader. Tyler will be attending Cape Fear Community College in the fall.
Ryan Proud: Ryan has been a part of the team for the past two seasons. He worked really hard to improve from last year to this year. Ryan was not going to beat himself, as he was very consistent. Ryan probably had the best backhand on the team due to his commitment and perseverance. Ryan will be attending NC State University in the fall.
Nate Natale: Nate was a member of the Tennis team each of the last two seasons. Nate had raw natural ability and was easily coached. His size and length made him a tough opponent for anybody. Nate really excelled at doubles and worked hard every day. Nate will be attending Appalachian State University in the fall.
Ridge Pate: Ridge played on the Tennis team for two years at South Point. Ridge had a killer first serve. He worked hard every day at practice and made our team better. Ridge is still deciding between App State and UNCW to further his education this fall.
