GLVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year
RUSSELL ARMSTRONG

We have some exciting news about our coaching staff. First Menno Servaes was named the GLVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year at the University of Illinois Springfield. We are very proud and happy to have him on our staff. He is a great example of all of the strong athletes we have working here. He is currently coaching for the Academy group here at Oak Park Tennis Center and is a great example on and off the court for the kids. Russell, a 21-year-old player, will be representing the US Virgin Islands this next week in the Davis Cup against Panama. Many things to celebrate and be proud of. We are happy to have a great coaching staff to lead by example. Please say congratulations if you see them on the courts!
