“I am very pleased and excited with how far I have gone this season,” Brusse said, “Coming into this year, my goal was to qualify for singles districts.”

Brusse needed to place third or above in counties to advance, but he overachieved and placed first in both singles and doubles.

Brusse has been playing tennis since second grade but  started playing competitively last year.

Watching Brusse grow as an athlete, juniors Peyton Joines and Anne Jackson have played tennis with Brusse for many years.

“I expect him to have a great year just like this one,” Jackson said, “Without a doubt, he will make it to counties again next year, but regardless, the team will still be happy for him no matter what.”

Brusse works hard year round to continue his excellence on the court doing various things.

“Every school day, the team has tennis practice for 2-2.5 hours practicing various drills and physical conditioning,” Brusse said. “I take private lessons for tennis, and over the summer, I am involved in a different tennis program called YACTA with people from our school and from around the county.”

Joines believes Brusse has the “patience” to get through the rest of his high school tennis career along with much more hard work and skills.

Brusse had the opportunity to play and learn alongside Susky’s former first place singles winner, Andy Snyder.

“Colin has grown a tremendous amount since the beginning of his freshman year,” Joines said, “Patience is an extremely difficult trait to fulfill while playing tennis, but Colin is extremely talented in the sense that he uses this to his best advantage.”
