Each week the Lovejoy Athletic Department will feature the outstanding contributions from a member of our coaching staff. We appreciate the time, dedication, and the leadership that they invest in our student-athletes. This week’s Spotlight is on Lovejoy Head Tennis coach, Adam Cherry. The tennis team had a phenomenal fall season making it to the Regional Finals against Highland Park. For the Team Tennis season, Lovejoy was ranked in the #10 in the state and most likely will finish in the top 5. Congratulations to Coach Cherry and the tennis team on an outstanding season!
