Spring Arbor tennis adds Hall to 2012-13 roster

John Hall signs a letter of intent to play tennis at Spring Arbor University.

The legacy continues, as John Hall—grandson of Spring Arbor University (SAU) Hall of Fame tennis coach, Charlie Carey, and son of SAU tennis alum, Malcolm Hall—has signed a letter of intent to play tennis at SAU beginning in fall 2012.

Hall, who will graduate from Rockford High School this month, will leave behind a wildly successful prep career including being named twice First Team All Conference, and twice on the Grand Rapids Top Ten Players to Watch list. Hall has also accumulated several USTA tournament wins.

While success on the court is evident, it isn’t the only place Hall’s talent shines brightly. Three times he has been named Student-Athlete of the month, and he is an AP/honor student with a 4.0 grade-point average.

“I have been keeping an eye on John since he was a kid and we are thrilled that he will be coming to SAU,” said Head Coach Terry Darling. “He has that great combination of being an outstanding person, a gifted student, and a strong tennis player who has some great experience in singles and doubles.”

Coach Darling isn’t resting on the recent success the Cougars men’s program has achieved. He is striving for more, and accumulating talent is key to that process.
