Pulse-Journal Quotes:

• Cody Ridinger, regarding playing at the collegiate level: “It’s huge. It’s what I’ve been shooting for all four years in high school.”

• Coach Stubbs: “I’m pretty happy with the situation. I’m excited and the kids are working hard. You can feel the excitement in the air.”

• Coach Todd Butts: “I want to be a tennis teacher, an educator if you will. I want to let kids have the opportunity to come out and enjoy this game. If you become good enough, you could go on and play competitively, maybe even get a college scholarship. Either way, you’ll learn a sport that you can play the rest of your life.”

• AD Dave Bauer: “We are fortunate to have a person with Todd’s knowledge being able to teach tennis to our student athletes. He has a great family history in tennis, and I am hopeful that he will be able to build a strong program here.” “There will be middle school tennis next year. I want to get that bit of news out there. We’ve already lined up a few middle school matches, so they will play other schools next season.”

• Coach Popplewell: “We’ve already challenged the guys in the weight room. To be honest, right now, I don’t care if they make a shot. I want them to play hard. That’s their only job as we go into the summer league, and that’s half the battle. If they play hard, we’ll have a chance to win.” “We need a team where every member cares about each other. It won’t be about one guy. We’ll be telling them about commitment, trust and effort over and over and over again, because that’s what we’ll be all about.”

• Coach Hunt: “It was a great honor for me. You obviously don’t get awards like this without having a great coaching staff and great players behind you. And Cody’s award is special because now someone from Monroe has won that award in back-to-back years.”
