Mark Hodgin Junior Sportmanship Award

Junior players who demonstrate behavior that is considered courteous and exemplary both on and off the court. (Opinions of tournament directors and referees are important for this award.)

Rebecca Spratt

The 2015 Junior Sportsmanship Girl Award recipient also shows how to succeed on court and honor the game. Rebecca Spratt of Charleston is ranked inside the top 30 in the state for the girls 16 and under singles division. She also goes out of her way to treat her opponents well. Rebecca has been taught the value of sportsmanship from an early age by her parents, John and Linda. When Rebecca plays, she rarely shouts or slams her racquet when she’s struggling. Instead, to regain her focus, she quietly talks to herself or takes a second to relax.


Ashe Ray

Ashe’s model behavior has helped him earn the respect and acknowledgement of his peers and fellow coaches throughout the state and region, as exemplified in his sportsmanship award at the Southern Closed Championships.

He is the admirable player who not only looks forward to the competition of tennis, but also the moments in which he can display his great sportsmanship. He knows that being a great sport does not come easy, but says that embracing this challenge has made him a better sport as well as a better person. Well said, Ashe.

Mark Hodgin was a top-ranked junior player in his age group for years in South Carolina. He also won nine singles and doubles titles at the Palmetto Championships. In addition to his strong play, Mark’s attitude and composure helped him stand out on the tennis court. Mark’s promising life was cut short in 1990. He was 28.
