Neville High School’s Head Tennis Coach Kathryn Waters and Eric Herndon, Neville’s Strength and Conditioning Coach and Assistant Tennis Coach, will be awarded the 2013 LHSAA “Super Sport” Award for their efforts and management of last year’s 2013 State Tennis Tournament, which was held in Monroe. Although the event was soggy due to a lingering storm that dampened play, the two coaches mustered volunteers and fortitude to ensure that all matches got played, ensuring an event for the record books. Over 650 competitors participated in last year’s state tennis championships in Monroe during April. Monroe will again host the tournament in 2014 and 2015.
This LHSAA award “recognizes individuals that have gone above and beyond for the betterment of high school sports in Louisiana.” Waters and Herndon will be presented with the award at the upcoming Coca-Cola LHSAA Principals’ Luncheon in Baton Rouge on Thursday, January 30, 2014.
