Stevens Point Area Senior High (SPASH) tennis is just one of the many sports offered at our school. But who coaches the players throughout the season?

This is the story of Trevor Knight, one of the tennis coaches at SPASH.

Knight, who has been an educator for 12 years, teaches Personal Finance and also runs the school store.

His love for tennis started back in eighth grade when he started to play the sport. This is where Knight started his journey into the world of tennis. He said he enjoyed the sport and playing it with his friends. Knight also played in college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Knight now coaches tennis for SPASH. He is the head coach for the boys team which plays in the spring and the assistant coach for the girls team who play late summer and early fall. Before SPASH he coached at Wausau East.

Right now the girls tennis season is going really well. They have a shot for the finals. One of the players, Elizabeth Wentzel said, the “team has been great, it’s been a lot of fun this year.”

    I liked how you incorporated a quote from one the tennis players. It was nice to hear a little about how Knight played in college and how he came to coach tennis at SPASH.

    Since I am part of the boy’s tennis team here at SPASH, it is interesting to know about my coach. I don’t know that much about him but this article provides me with good information about Mr. Knight and hopefully, this story will inspire others to play the sport.

    Great article! I don’t play any sports but I really loved how the article goes into background on Knight. Really liked how you have a quote from one of the players as well.
    Keep up the good work.

    Great article. I played noncompetitive tennis. To be honest, it was awesome!! The feeling and thrill of beating your opponent makes it even more interesting.
