Alec Shue, a senior at Red Lion Area Senior High School, is excited for the upcoming tennis season. Working up to this year, Shue has played tennis all of his life, and is very passionate about the sport.
Shue says that the goal for the season is for the team to move onto districts, and as a personal goal, to get second in counties.
When asked what his role as a leader consisted of, he described that he likes to lead by example. “I would say i'm more of a silent leader,” Shue said. “I believe that it's the best way to show the younger kids on the team how to handle themselves, and how to play a solid match of tennis.”
Shue has been playing under Coach Small for four years now, and seems to be enjoying his coaching style.
“He's a good coach, he learns right along with us, and has a great attitude with things.”
When asked what the best advice he could give the younger players, Shue replied by saying, “Work hard and enjoy the moment, because it doesn't last long.”
Tennis is something that Alec plans to participate in for the rest of his life. He currently plays in multiple leagues where he plays older players as well, which gives him motivation to play for as long as he can.
