ROCKFORD – Auburn senior tennis player Quinten Nevenhoven signed to play NCAA Division I tennis at UT-Chattanooga. Not too many Rockford area tennis players make it to the DI level. Rockford Christian grad Brandon Ancona plays at Valparaiso. So Nevenhoven knows how special this opportunity is.
“It’s extremely exciting,” Nevenhoven said after signing his National Letter of Intent. “It’s a huge weight off my shoulders. I’ve been training for this ever since I was younger. I’ve really wanted to play Division I tennis ever since I started playing tennis. So this is huge for me.”
Nevenhoven has advanced to the third round of the IHSA 2-A state tennis playoffs in each of the past two seasons.
