Putnam North: Chris Haworth and Wil Rodwell push each other...
By Robert Przybylo
I remember the first time I met Putnam North tennis player Chris Haworth. Let’s just say he’s grown a good eight inches since that initial encounter.
He’s the best player in the state and is among the best in the nation. Oh yeah, No. 2 singles player Wil Rodwell isn’t too shabby, either.
It’s tough for Rodwell to be noticed because of Haworth’s success, but in spending time with the both of them, they feed off of and push each other to their respective success.
Because of a communication error, this photo did not run with the Rodwell story in Wednesday’s paper. I thought photographer John Clanton did a great job of conveying what I was trying to say, so I’m posting the photo here on the blog. Can’t wait for the tennis season to start. You can also read the Rodwell story below the photo.
Putnam North’s Wil Rodwell ready to break out
By Robert Przybylo
For most high school tennis players, going 30-3 and finishing as the state runner-up equals a pretty successful season.
And Putnam City North junior Wil Rodwell is proud of everything he accomplished last year.
But when you’re practice partner goes 38-0 and wins the state championship without losing a set like junior Chris Haworth did, sometimes you can be overshadowed.
