Sometimes the spark lit by a tennis racquet will turn into a bright burning!
This TCSP Member Spotlight introduces us to a very special tennis player – and recently inducted Seattle Public School Hall of Fame Basketball Player- Sue Verdiun. Anyone having the honor and fun of playing tennis with Sue, immediately notice her preparation, good sportsmanship, and dedication on the court. In this player, it could be the basketball court that initially lit Sue’s great spark!
Born and raised in Seattle, Sue was a Ballard High School top competitor in both tennis and basketball, but it was basketball that earned Sue a full ride scholarship to attend Seattle University and lead their Division I basketball team. Sue was an obvious standout on the basketball court but never lost her spark for tennis. It turns out, that spark was originally fanned by her high-school coach Bebe Burns, a longtime tennis advocate and state ranked player who’s methods planted the love of tennis deep in Sue’s heart.
In 2016, Sue’s 18+ 4.0 USTA team took 3rd at Nationals, and currently, her 55+ 4.0 USTA team is heading to sectionals in June with hopes of getting to Nationals again. Join us in wishing Sue and her team the best of luck ahead. We look forward to seeing this great “baller” on the court ahead and are so grateful her spark shines so brightly for all of us.
