Freshman tennis star advances to districts
- Published: May 18, 2014
At the high school sectional tennis tournament earlier this week, Yellow Springs High School freshman Augie Knemeyer won three straight matches to finish in the top four of 42 singles players from 14 schools.
Knemeyer qualified for next week’s district tournament at the world-famous ATP tennis center in Mason, Ohio. He plays this weekend for seeding.
“He played six-and-a-half hours of tough tennis in the 80-degree heat showing fitness, skill and fortitude,” Coach Donna Silvert said of the young Knemeyer’s performance.
Knemeyer was also named the First Team All-Metro Buckeye Conference for his successful campaign at first singles for the Bulldogs. His season record is 13–3.
Other YSHS tennis players receiving conference honors were Gabe Day and Nick Miller-Jacobson, All-MBC Second Team for second doubles, and Meredith Rowe, who won the MBC Coach’s Award.
