TSU Tennis Adds Four
Monday, June 3, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee State Head Tennis Coach Robert Cain announced his first signing class at TSU with a pair on the men's and women's team.

Trinity Randolph is a senior graduating from Central High School located in Little Rock, Ark.. "I have had the privilege to watch Trinity grow and develop her skills on and off the court," Cain said. "Her work ethic and willingness to practice has exceeded all my expectations. She continuously shows tremendous signs of improvement through her performance on the court and has elevated her level of fitness. Not only have I had the honor of watching Trinity develop into the young lady that she is today, but I have also had an opportunity to develop a relationship with Mr. & Mrs. Randolph. Knowing her parents and the principles that they live by makes me very confident the Trinity will be an excellent addition to the Women’s tennis team."




Victoria Haynes from McKinney, Texas, attended McKinney Boyd High School. Her top 50 Super champ ranking within Texas is a meager representation of her amazing talent and her natural athletic abilities. "Her willingness to practice will have a major impact on the development of her tennis game the next four years" Cain said. Not only is Victoria a brilliant tennis player but she is also an excellent student who finished with a 3.2 as her overall GPA. Victoria also displays good old fashion family values, instilled in her by her parents, which are very pleasant qualities to see.



Darryl Hale is a JUCO transfer from Holmes Community College. During his freshman year, he was ranked top ten in the nation while only losing two matches the entire season. He also won an ITA Regional tournament and went undefeated in 2012. "His extensive player background and winning record will mature and generate new quality of leadership to our relatively young Men’s tennis team," said Cain.




Joe Daniels is a Tennessee native who is graduating from Beech Senior High School in Hendersonville. He is an exceptional tennis player, ranked #3 in the state, who has worked extremely hard to improve his game. Not only does he possess remarkable athletic ability but he also mentally sound and focused on the court. "There are many upsides to Mr. Daniels game, although there is still a long and difficult road ahead." Cain explains. "Joe realizes there is still room for improvement within his game and is looking forward to challenge. Having gotten to know Joe and his parents like I have, I can personally say Joe is a product of fine upbringing. He is very respectful and well mannered; these are qualities that I like to see in all of my recruits."
