Powell To Play Tennis For KC

Greenville High School graduate Dima Powell has signed a letter of intent to play men’s tennis at Kaskaskia College beginning next school year.

A ceremony was held at GHS Tuesday afternoon. Attending were Dima, his mother, Wendy Quisenberry; his brother, Ivan; GHS Tennis Coach Sean Courty and Kaskaskia College Tennis Coach Joe Basch.

When Coach Basch was asked how he envisions Dima fitting into his program, he said, “He came and visited, was able to hit with pretty much the whole guys from last year’s team, and I think he’ll definitely fit in. The fitness level is extremely high, so he’s going to be able to play those long marathon matches. We have a lot of returning players, but we need to add some more depth. We’ll have a full roster of nine players, and I think he’ll fit somewhere in our top six for sure.”
