Saint John's student, James McKane was awarded the 2017 USTA Mid-Atlantic Emerging Leader Award at the Washington Kastles match at the Smith Center on George Washington University’s campus on July 29, 2017. This award recognizes a youth who exudes the ideals and values of USTA Mid-Atlantic both on and off the court. This past year, James organized a Kids Play for Good on-court tennis rally benefitting Stand for the Silent, an anti-bullying organization. The event raised thousands of dollars to combat bullying in schools. Congratulations to James McKane!
