Following the Varsity Tennis team’s incredible 9-1 start, while being undefeated in ISL play, defeating their rival Roxbury Latin, it seems appropriate that The Panel should celebrate Jarrett Chen ‘22 as the Athlete of the Issue. Jarret Chen has been on the team since Form I and has proven himself to be one of the hardest working members. Although Jarrett has not achieved his goal of winning the ISL yet, he is aiming further this year, stating, “My goal is to win ISLs; however, I believe we can win New Englands on top of that.”
After a disappointing Covid-19 season, Jarrett showed his leadership, raising team morale both on and off the court, bringing Belmont Hill’s tennis team back to the winning standard with which we are familiar. Jarrett looks to continue bringing positive energy every day to the court, stating that “I really like the team, and I wouldn’t want to spend my senior season with anyone else. Ultimately, I think we are favorites to win.” Although there are many more matches left in the season, Jarrett and the rest of the Belmont Hill community are happy to see the tennis team continue to succeed and are hopeful for an ISL championship or further this year.
