Heath Coomer, son of Jon and Ami Coomer participates in the Greenville High School orchestra, student council, and is a member of the National Honor Society. After graduation, Heath will be attending High Point University in North Carolina majoring in business.
“Heath has worked at his game,” said Coach Kiser. “He just started playing as a freshman but put in a lot of work – went down to IMG Academy over the summer a couple of times so he’s had the lessons, he’s put in the work. Heath is having a great year at first doubles.”
Ash Williams, son of Rob and Claire Williams participates in golf, science fair, Spanish Club, National Honor Society and Key Club at GHS. Ash plans to attend the Ohio State University in the fall, majoring in biology and then pediatric dentistry.
“Ash came in as a freshman – didn’t play until he got to be a freshman and worked his way up from close to last on the depth chart three years ago to a varsity player as a senior,” Kiser stated. “That is just a great story and he is such a good kid. If you need something done, he’ll get it done for you.”
Logan Witwer, son of Dan and Lynn Witwer will be attending Norther Kentucky University in the fall majoring in cyber-security.
Logan got a late start this year,” said Kiser. “He wasn’t real consistent until about two or three weeks into the season and then he started coming on so I put him in the rotation with ash Williams and Maxville Jordan at second doubles – it has worked out well for us.”
Jiahao Zhang, son of Hugh and Emily Zhang participates in Key Club, soccer, National Honor Society, Student Council, French Club, “The Club” and soccer. Jiahoa plans to attend a four year university in the fall.
“When Jiahao moved in as an eighth grader he came right over to me and said I’m going to be playing tennis for you next year and he was an eighth grader,” Kiser noted. “If you ever walk past the courts he is always out there with his dad. A great kid, a great family – he just works so hard and is so coachable.”
“Four great kids,” Coach Kiser concluded. “They have kept the winning program going here at Greenville and they have been the leaders of it. They had done a great job.”
