Eric Cender, a recent graduate of Valparaiso (Ind.) High School, has signed a letter of intent to continue his tennis and academic careers at Hesston College.

“I’m excited to welcome Eric to the men’s squad,” said Hesston coach Myron Diener. “His commitment and hard work helped his high school team make a deep post-season run last year. We look forward to having Eric on campus.”

An all-state performer and team co-captain, Cender compiled a 21-5 singles record his senior year in helping Valparaiso High to a sectional championship. 

A National Honor Society member, Cender will study Business at Hesston. He attends Valparaiso Mennonite Church.

Cender is the son of Karl and Wilma Cender, Valparaiso.
