Q&A with Boys’ Tennis Number 2: Jack Edwards

Jack is a sophomore, and he has been on the Pella Boys’ Tennis for two years. This year he’s on varsity.

Q: What are your goals for tennis?

Q: Who are your toughest opponents?

A: When it comes to the tennis meet, there are a couple of tough opponents like Norwalk and Ballard because they are both really good teams. Individually, there are a couple good players who we can’t beat, and on other occasions, we can beat them.

Q: What made you decide to do tennis?

A: My brother did tennis his freshman year, his first year he wasn’t very good, but then his second year he made varsity, and that kind of drove me when I was in middle school.

A: This year I have won all four of my singles and two doubles. Last year I won 7 of 9 of my singles.
