Most Improved Junior Boy

Junior players who make the most improvement in their game with consideration given to their improvement in state, section, and national (if applicable) rankings

Hale & Wyatt Emerson

This year’s Most Improved Junior Boy Award goes to a set of brothers that have shown that hard work pays off, Hale & Wyatt Emerson.

In 2015 Wyatt had a state rank of 74 and Hale of 70 in boys 14’s.  Currently, Wyatt is holding strong at 25 and Hale at 23, which is nearly a 50-spot jump for both boys.

Individually they have both seen success on the court.  Wyatt won the Pepsi Junior Florence singles and the South Carolina Closed Hardcourt State Championships.

Hale had similar success matching his brother with two titles of his own at the Debordieu Junior Championships and the Rawls Creek Junior Championships.  One brother often beats the other in a semifinal or final. Together they shared success on the court winning the 2016 SC Closed Hardcourt State Championships in the 14’s doubles.
