Congrats are in order for Coach Jason Allen(Page HS), who has just been named the USPTA Southern Region High School Tennis Coach of the Year……
Good job Coach Allen and more details are forthcoming…..USPTA is the United States Professional Tennis Association……Pretty much like the old USTA, one would think and I think we will look deeper into this…Great piece of sports news….From what we were reading the USPTA has been around since 1927 and that is longer than Allen Morris, one of the long-time tennis stars from our area and he may have moved on by now, as did Jane Preyer and many of our other local tennis historians……
A little geographical bonus from the News and Record:(www.news-record.com)
The Southern region for the USPTA is composed of 10 states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Allen will receive the award during the USPTA Southern Convention on May 19 in Suwannee, Ga.
Didn’t former Page standout and current men’s tennis star John Isner attend the University of Georgia???
