Rosewell Inks Three to National Letters of Intent
MARYVILLE, Mo. - Head Coach Mark Rosewell, the winningest coach in Northwest tennis history, has announced the signing of three student-athletes to National Letters of Intent: Lindsay Weideman (Omaha, Neb.), Emily Hoffman (Liberty, Mo.) and Calvin Patterson (Edmonton, Alberta). All three signed during the early signing period.
Hoffman finished third in the Missouri Class 2 Doubles Tournament at Liberty High School in 2008 to earn all-state honors. She led the Blue Jays to a district championship and won a district doubles title with partner Leslee Feldhaus. In 2007, Liberty finished third in team duals with a 5-0 shutout of Nerinx Hall. She was a Sun News All-Northland First Team selection in 2008.
A three-time state quarterfinalist in No. 1 singles, Weideman led Omaha Burke to a pair of top 10 finishes in the state tournament in 2007 and 2008. She finished her final three seasons with a combined record of 64-29.
The lone signee for the men's team, Patterson was the Alberta provincial singles champion in the under-18 division in 2007. He represented Alberta in the 2008 Junior Indoor Tennis Nationals, where he advanced to the second round. He was the Coca-Cola under-14 singles champion in 2004 at Fargo, N.D., where he won his final four matches in straight sets.
Both Northwest tennis programs begin the 2009 spring season with Newman at Topeka, Kan., March 6.
