Rincon/University standout Ethan Lee will be part of the inaugural Net Generation Aces Program according to the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
According to a release by the USTA, the program identified athletes between the ages of 13 and 17 who are making a positive difference in their local communities through creative and impactful tennis programs.
“We are super proud of him,” his mother Sharon Lee said. “He works really hard concentrating on wins and losses in tennis and, thankfully, there have been more wins, but to have the USTA recognize him for his work in the community and leadership is very important and we are really proud of him.”
Lee will attend Arthur Ashe Day at the US Open this Saturday in Flushing, New York as part of the program and he take in some of the events there. Later, he will represent USTA on many issues including sportsmanship and community involvement.
Currently ranked No. 3 at the age 16 level for the Southwest, Lee captured the AIA Division I Singles championship last year for the Rangers.
