Aucilla Christian Academy Athletic Director Kevin Smith is pleased to announce Phil Barker will be ACA’s new varsity girls’ and boys’ tennis team coach this coming season. Barker, who played both tennis and soccer at Saint Leo University, held a team meeting on December 15 and currently has eight boys and 15 girls signed-up to play this year.
“We haven’t had a tennis team at ACA in quite a while, so adding the sport back into our athletic program is exciting,” said Smith. “Coach Barker is very knowledgeable about the sport and is passionate about helping kids, so it’s going to be a lot of fun following ACA tennis this year.”
ACA’s tennis team will begin practicing on January 11, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. at the Jefferson Co. Recreation Park. Their first match is tentatively scheduled the first week of February and will conclude the last week in March. For more information on ACA Athletics, visit aucilla.org or call 850-997-3597.
