Posted: May 25, 2017

May 17th was a big day for senior Andrew Ton. Not only did he receive word that he was named a 2017 Boys All-American by the National High School Tennis All-American Foundation (NHSTAAF), but that he also was one of two recipients of the Bill Talbert Junior Sportsmanship Award.

The NHSTAAF rewards personal achievement and encourages the development of high-caliber high school tennis. To be recognized as an All-American, students must maintain an above-average academic record, compete on a high school tennis team and be highly ranked in the US Tennis Association (USTA) juniors. Each year 40 boys and 40 girls are awarded All-American status.

The Bill Talbert Junior Sportsmanship Awards are presented each year by the USTA and the International Tennis Hall of Fame. It is presented to the two junior players who exemplify the finest qualities of sportsmanship in tournament play, as well as the finest tradition of great sportsmanship, past and present.
