Coach Ari Finkelstein said Brooks Barnes stepped up this year and earned his way to our No. 1 singles spot, as well as being voted co-captain. While new to singles, Brooks has put on a brave face and shown impressive effort in his matches against the best tennis players in our region. This effort contributed to him being chosen as the boys tennis Athlete of the Month for August 2023.
“As one of our two captains this year, Brooks has helped coaches lead many drills and conditioning activities at practice, in addition to leading warm-ups at our matches. He is respectful to the coaches and players alike, he supports his teammates during competition, and he never backs down from a challenge..”Ari Finkelstein, PRA HS Boys Tennis Coach
