Brendan Henry, a senior at Farmingdale High School, received the Lt. Frederick M. Scribner Jr. Boys 18 Sportsmanship Award from the USTA Eastern Section at its recent Annual Meeting & Awards Reception.

Brendan, of Massapequa, is ranked number 15 in the Boys 18s Division and plans to attend Wake Forest University in the fall. He has been playing tennis for 10 years, and trains at Sportime Bethpage and Randall’s Island, as well as at the John McEnroe Tennis Academy. Brendan says he is honored to receive the award “because it's good to know that someone has recognized and appreciated my good tennis etiquette and the passion I have for the game.”

He is excited to be playing for Wake Forest next year on a highly competitive collegiate team.
