Practice and focus have helped Oak Lawn Community High School boys tennis player Gabe Gaidelis become a solid third doubles player on the varsity team. In addition to team practices, he practices on his own time, and he offers advice to teammates.
So far this season, he has three wins under his belt. Now, he is looking for even more on the court.
“Gabe often practices one-on-one with his older brother,” head coach Adam Winchell said. “He is a leader on the team, who other players go to for advice. If he continues practicing and stays focused, he has a real shot at placing at the South Suburban Conference Red meet and at the Illinois High School Association Sectional.”
