LeMars cap off memorable season


Tonawanda News — LeMar said the team will miss John-Michael’s commitment to the program, his admiration for his teammates and his leadership.

“With John-Michael — tennis isn’t really the biggest sport at NT — but I know when he took the reigns as a freshman, playing first singles and he won the doubles title as a freshman, I think that was the year he really started to care about the school,” LeMar said. “He said he wanted to win championships and get banners up because he cared.

“He was able to put an identity to the team. I think as a sophomore and a junior he was the top rated singles player in the league. He definitely accomplished a lot and he was so happy this year that the team won and that he was able to to spend his last year with so many close friends.”

LeMar said John-Michael’s impact on the program will live on in Andrew, who has benefitted from learning how to play and lead from his older brother.
