Tompkins and Funk sign to play tennis at Hesston College

Hesston College Tennis Coach Jeron Baker has announced the signings of two student-athletes, Jordan Tompkins, Wellington, Kan., and Taylor Funk, Russell, Kan., who will join the Larks program this fall.

Jordan Tompkins, who also played two years of high school basketball for Wellington High, plans to study Aviation at Hesston.

“Jordan is a solid player with good varsity experience,” said Baker. “He will be not only a great fit and addition to the tennis team, but also to the larger community as a whole. I’m excited about the ways he will impact our program and our lives.”

Tompkins is the son of Lynne Tompkins, Wellington.

Taylor Funk has participated in tennis, basketball and softball during her time at Russell High. She lettered in softball and tennis in each of the past three years.

An active part of St John’s Lutheran Church in Russell, Funk has been involved in mission trips, and has taught Sunday school and helped with Bible school.

“Taylor is a good player who brings senior leadership as well as an energetic spirit to our team,” added Baker. “I’m excited about her upside and ability to create a relaxing environment during pressure situations. Anyone would love to have her as a doubles partner.”

Funk is the daughter of Dave and Rola Funk, Russell.
