Yorkville Christian High School is gearing up for their first year with hirings across the board.
First up, former Aurora Christian tennis standout, Jon Stott, joins the Mustangs as their first every boys' and girls' tennis coach.
As a high schooler, Stott was an Illinois State Finalist and ranked 6th in the nation in doubles. He was a three year letter winner on the Men's Tennis team at Arizona State University, while also being named to First Team All-Academic for the PAC-10 Conference.
He has experience working with thousands of tennis athletes through his experiences at IMG Academy in Florida and now at JStott Tennis Academy in Aurora.
When asked about the position at YCHS, Stott said, "I was blessed to have great Christian coaches and teachers throughout my playing career. They taught me the great sport of tennis and mentored me in my walk with the Lord. I am eager to pass it on to the Mustang athletes now!"
Stott currently attends Willow Creek Community Church.
Yorkville Christian High School will open for the 2014-15 school year and expects about 100 students to enroll for this year.
