Highlights From Homecoming Tennis Reunion

Albion College tennis alumni Sarah Towler, '12, Marissa Messenger, '13, John VandenBerg, '08, Gail Walker, '77, Dave Walker, '76, Dave Haak, '84, Adam Brown, Dave Blake, Chris Tapping, '10, Billy Sessions, '13, and John Kirtland, '75 gathered Oct. 12 for a special Homecoming reunion.

The alumni played doubles contests against fellow alumni and later in the day current players took the court to play doubles with and against the alumni. Shirts were given to the participants and the former and current Britons enjoyed fellowship over Cascarelli's pizza and breadsticks.

"It is so encouraging to see Albion College alumni continue to come out and support the tennis programs," Albion Director of Tennis Keith Turner said. "This is my third college as a head coach and I have never had as good of a turnout for our alumni events as I have had here at Albion. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day for tennis. I hope to continue to be able to hold the tennis alumni event in the fall and make it a staple of the Homecoming weekend festivities."
