Logan Welp spent a lot of time at the No. 1 singles position for the Southridge boys tennis team — not only did he make an impact on the team with his play, but he also left his mark on his teammates by helping them with their play. Southridge head coach Paul Kinker referred to him as a 'court rat' during the season to affectionately describe how Welp would often stay late after practice or come to practice early and help out some of the younger players on the teams with their shots.

A Q&A with Southridge alum Logan Welp who will be playing collegiate tennis at Brescia University.

What was the biggest factor into your decision to play sports collegiately? I decided that I was dedicated enough to the sport and I wanted to continue playing.

What stood out about Brescia University over the other schools that you visited? What stood out is that it is in a friendly neighborhood, there are many things that the campus and city (Owensboro, Kentucky) offers, and it's not too far away from home.

During your time at Southridge, who or what do you feel most prepared you for playing sports in college? The person that prepared me the most for college tennis is Kelly Kieffner because of his constant support and he always helped me practice.

What was your biggest accomplishment during your time at Southridge? My biggest accomplishment during my time in high school was being a positive role model to the other guys on the tennis team and helping them understand how to get better.

If you could describe your high school athletic experience in one word, what would it be? Sweaty.
