The Knox Community School Board members spotlighted the boys tennis team during their meeting Monday night.
Superintendent A.J. Gappa commented that it was the first time in the team’s history the team members were the winners of the Northern State Conference.
“The tennis team was here with their coaches, Mark Krom and Dick Wagner, to be introduced to the board. They not only set a school record for the first conference championship, but they had some individual records. The team had the most wins in history and they had the most consecutive wins. They also won the tournament that Knox hosted for the first time. It was a very good year for the tennis team. It was nice to be able to give them some recognition,” stated Gappa.
