Athletes of Distinction

Seward County Tennis Teams Help Spruce Up Yellow Brick Road

On a mild November afternoon last week, the Seward County CC (Kan.) tennis teams took their talents not to the tennis courts but to Dorothy’s House and the Coronado Museum to help spruce up the yellow brick road and the museum grounds.  The Saints and Lady Saints players used the afternoon to rake leaves and clean up trash around one of Liberal’s most famous attractions.  The teams collectively raked around 20 bags full of leaves off of the now bare winter trees. 

“It has been years since a group called us looking to help and we are so fortunate to have the hard working students from the Seward County tennis program reach out to us to provide a helping hand when we needed it most” a spokeswomen from Seward County Historical Society said. 

While it did cause a few of the players to break a sweat with the hard work, head coach Jerry Thor seemed to think that the work would do as much good for his players as it did for the museum, saying “one of the most important responsibilities for a Saints tennis player is finding ways to have an impact on campus and be of service to the community. I am excited to provide an opportunity for our athletes to experience the history of Seward County and encourage them to be caretakers of its future.”

Thor said that the team will continue to look for things that they can do to help impact the Liberal community.  Talks are already in the works for them to possibly return to Dorothy’s House in the Spring to help some other facelift projects.
