Baillon wins Athlete of the Week

High School Sports

URBANA (WCIA) — St. Thomas More tennis standout Wade Baillon is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The junior is a perfect 14-0 in singles play this season and 6-3 at No. 1 doubles. The two-time state qualifier is gearing up for sectionals and has his sights set on another trip to the state finals.

“I hope to go beyond sectionals but I’m not trying to think too far ahead, just one step at a time, one match at a time,” Baillon said. “Coahces always told me it’s just ‘have fun out there’ but winning mnatches is so much more than having fun, it just gives you a boost of confidence which is so much more than I could ever imagine.”

Baillon is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away in June to one weekly winner. To vote for the next Athlete of the Week, click here:
