Seattle U men’s and women’s tennis teams won the Northwest Intercollegiate Tennis Association Community Service Award in their respective categories.
Over the past year, members of both teams have volunteered with various organizations throughout the local Seattle community.
Among these are the Northwest Harvest Food Drive, the ACEing Autism Foundation, and the Diabetes Research Foundation.
Players helped package over 4,000 meals, provided tennis lessons for children with autism, and helped fundraise for the Diabetes Research Foundation.
"I am so proud of our tennis student-athletes," said head coach Adam Reeb. "This is a tremendous honor for both teams. They truly embody the mission and spirit of our Jesuit institution and practice servant leadership. They have all made such an impact in our community and have touched the lives of many people."
