Hesston College tennis adds local talent for 2012-13 season

Wesley Wilder signs a tennis letter of intent

Hesston College tennis coach Jeron Baker announced the addition of Wesley Wilder, a 2012 Hesston High School graduate, for this year’s tennis season.

“I’m very excited about Wes joining our team,” said Head Coach Jeron Baker. “Wes has a deep desire to learn the game and does everything he can to find out about the strengths and weaknesses of opposing players. He will help our team be more cerebral in our approach to the game.”

Aside from his time with Hesston High Tennis, Wilder also played two years of cross country and football for the Swathers. He was a key part of the Swathers’ 2011 tennis team that finished state runners-up at the Kansas 4A State Boys tournament.

A four-year honor roll student and Kansas Scholar, Wilder plans to study nursing at Hesston College. Wilder is an active member of Whitestone Mennonite Church in Hesston. He is the son of Kevin and Marilyn Wilder, Hesston.
