Earlier this year Chris won the Southern Hard Courts tennis championships. He figured, why not make the jump to the national seniors tennis scene. Why not, indeed. After all, he already had a template (so to speak) to follow. In 1978 he was Division III singles and doubles national champion, playing on the 1978 national championship team under George Acker. This past June, Chris won the National Super Category II singles championship in Austin, Texas, his first national singles title since his senior year as a Hornet. In the finals at Austin he beat the number one seed, a longtime member of the U.S. International Team. As a result of his tournament win, Chris was ranked in the top 20 in the U.S. in his age division. He’s since climbed to number 12.
