Family ties lead Schuster to Nordonia boys tennis squad

When Ethan Schuster was younger, he would always stop by towards the end of the Nordonia girls tennis team’s matches to watch his older sister play for the Knights. He would also hit around once in a while during the summer.

“Ethan was never too serious about it, though. He’d hit around and just have fun, ”Nordonia boys and girls head tennis coach Ryan Vehar said. “He showed up the first day of practice for the boys team this year, and I looked at him and said, ‘Hey, are you thinking of playing tennis?’ And he said, ‘Yeah.’

“As he started practicing on our team, I thought I’d get that same kid who didn’t take it seriously, but he was pretty intense and was getting into tennis and playing and learning.”
