Fulton boys’ varsity tennis coach Matt Goodnaugh suggested that his team will have to find new resources of leadership next spring. After all, his team is losing nine seniors to graduation.
Alex Bawarski, Nate Deavers, Neil Devendorf, Brian Garrett, Joe Medico, Zach Mizener, Eric Naioti, Dan Wahl and foreign exchange student Worapaj (Bike) Thongyoy recently played in their final matches in a Fulton jersey.
Goodnaugh said his seniors emphasized the importance of performing to the best of their abilities. “They model hard work and leadership in meeting their goals,” he said.
Goodnaugh hopes that his seniors move on with the understanding that if they prepare while displaying a solid work ethic that the results will speak for themselves.
He also hopes that this is only the beginning of a lifetime of enjoyment within the sport.
“I hope that it was enjoyable enough that they would like to continue playing after graduation,” Goodnaugh said.
