Start in tennis

Enjoy most about sport

Favorite part of team

“The team is a great group of kids and I am fortunate enough to be in a tight-knit friend group who all plays the sport. The team always has a great spirit and makes sure to make each and every player feel welcome.”

Top high school tennis memory

Coach comment

“A senior captain for Anoka this year, Blake represents selflessness and not taking anything too serious,” Anoka head coach Eric Bertram said. “Often times when coached during a match he would say something like ‘We got this, they are not going to know what hit them,’ in a fun casual way. Blake has a natural feel for tennis that can not be taught, and is a competitor that really embodies the positive energy and comradery of this senior class for Anoka tennis. He was 13-3 on varsity his first year on varsity last year. Blake is just awesome!”
