The athlete of the month for April is being awarded to Jonathan Murphy, a Maplebrook senior and member of the MBS Society of Honor. Jonathan came into tennis this year as a beginner, with the goal of trying something new for his final athletic season at MBS. His eagerness to learn the sport, dedication to practice, and willingness to always help and provide positive encouragement to his teammates has made him an enormous asset to the team this season.

During matches, Jonathan always treatsĀ his fellow tennis players with great respect, on both the MBS team and opposing teams; his exemplary sportsmanship has drawn praise from coaches and players on other schools’ teams. Additionally, Jonathan’s serving, receiving, and score-keeping skills continue to improve with every match.

Well done, Jonathan – and Congratulations!
