School: Sussex Central High School
Nickname: Golden Knights
2012-2013 Record: Boys (0-14) Girls (2-12)
Head Coach: Boys – Phil Shultie Girls – Mike Thompson
Key Returning Players: Boys – Cory Burton, Mark Williams, Trevor McCandles, Jacob Miller, Jeremy West, Charlie Workman
Girls – Karen Rodriguez, Trish Sensineg
Season Outlook: After a tough season for the boys, they have 7 returning players to the team this year. With a year of experience under their belt, the hope is they use that experience to improve this season. Trevor McCandles and Jeremy West should compete at 2nd Doubles along with Jacob Miller and newcomer Butch Booth at 1st Doubles. Charlie Workman and Cory Burton return at 1st and 3rd Singles, while newcomer Mark Williams looks to make some noise at 2nd Singles.
For the Girls, Sussex Central returns only two starters, Trish Sensineg at 2nd Singles and Karen Rodriguez at 3rd Singles. Filling the vacated 1st Singles spot is newcomer Liane Williams who Head Coach Mike Thompson says is showing a lot of promise. The Golden Knights will be a very young squad as both Sensineg and Rodriguez are still only juniors. While wins would be nice, the key for Sussex Central this season will be growing the games of their young talent.
From the Coach:
“Overall, we will be rebuilding,” said Sussex Central Head Coach Mike Thompson. “And hopefully we get better as the year progresses.”
