Good Sunday to you all.

It has been a while since I posted for high school tennis. First and foremost, thank you all for a great season. We wrapped everything up with Scranton Prep and the doubles team of Gabi Jakubek and Tatiana Klacko at the state tournament.

I had a lot of fun and I hope you all did too. One of the unique experiences for me is to get to know a new group of players and stoke up new relationships. They come and go in the blink of an eye, unfortunately, but it is something I truly cherish.

So, why am I posting again here in November? Well, there are two orders of business that remain. The first is the announcement of the Lackawanna League Coaches’ All-Star teams, and then on Thanksgiving we will have the 2016 Times-Tribune All-Region team released.

I want to take the time to congratulate all of the players, and specifically, those honored here:
