CHS Grad Ryan Seggerman ...

Ryan Seggerman went on to win the 2017 CIF Singles title on his way to an undefeated season. Seggerman matriculated to Princeton to play tennis and his senior season is approaching, with an uncertain future.

There is some irony to the fact that last week’s Retro Nado Natterings featured the 2017 Islander Boys Tennis Team which won the Division I title and their star player, Ryan Seggerman, who went on to win the CIF Singles title on his way to an undefeated season. Seggerman matriculated to Princeton to play tennis and his senior season is approaching, with an uncertain future.

With his junior season last year cancelled and all college sports in a state of flux, a germ of a new idea is growing for some Division I tennis teams. The concept is for a three-month training camp for their players in San Diego, while they attend school remotely. Committed to the concept thus far are Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, USD, and the University of Washington. Others may follow. There will be weekly competitions and tournaments, most of which will be held at the Barnes Tennis Center. Finding housing for the Princeton team has been a challenge thus far.

Ryan’s father Scott Seggerman is the local contact for the Princeton squad. He is looking for a three-month lease from the end of August to the end of November, for the team, so they could all stay under one roof. The Princeton players are coming from England and India, as well as the United States, and travel can’t be booked until the local housing situation is confirmed. Time is of the essence. Scott Seggerman said, “These aren’t your normal college kids. They have training and nutritional regimens.” This training concept does not include any athletic department funding for housing.

If you have a housing suggestion for Scott Seggerman, he can be reached at scottsegg@gmail.com.

While I had Ryan on the phone, I asked him about his Princeton tennis career. He said, “It’s been awesome and I’m devastated that my senior year looks like this. It looks like it may be an unsatisfying end to something I have enjoyed so much. I have met so many great people. And I hate that it’s about to close. We have our fingers crossed for our senior season.”

The tennis team of youngsters of Princeton University is going for Coronado charter in the upcoming three months and students can check http://resumecompaniesreview.com/findmyprofession-com-review/ in order to manage the task. They are well enough in the tennis that they can easily win the tournament but some special techniques are needed by this team.
