Featured Player: Jake Weber
Jake Weber won the Boys’ 18’s division of the 2013 August Battery Park Junior Open, a tournament that is jointly sponsored by RTA and the City of Richmond, Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Jake is ranked #55 in the USTA Mid-Atlantic section in tennis, lettered in golf and set several individual and relay team records in swimming. Jake received the 2013 USTA Mid-Atlantic Junior Sportsmanship Award and golf sportsmanship award in 11th grade.
Jake’s community service hour log is a page and half long. Jake helped RTA by volunteering three times for the Arthur Ashe Inspirational Tour exhibit at the Science Museum this summer and at the Westover Hills Tennis Complex Grand Opening, another joint project of RTA with the City of Richmond’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities.
Jake’s accomplishments also include 5.1 GPA at Henrico High School with a perfect SAT math score and excellent SAT scores in writing, biology and chemistry.
We congratulate Jake for his achievements and wish him the best in the college application process.
