Higashi makes Thailand tennis debut at USCC UTR Tournament.

Hua Mak, Thailand – The newest member of the Wells Seahawk tennis family, Riku Higashi (Wells Class of 2026) made his debut in Thailand today at a USCC UTR Tournament ... As an unknown and at only 13 years of age, the Wells 7th-grader was placed in the Class A pool based on his relatively high UTR, with his first match against a 22-year-old college student, Nattaphat Khunthong. Despite dropping the match 6-2, Riku gave the veteran all he could handle, immediately earning tons of respect, and serving notice to the Bangkok tennis community that he will certainly be a player to be reckoned with in the not-so-distant future.

Also representing Wells at this tournament was 14-year-old Baramee (Micky) Thanawarothon (Wells Class of 2025) in Class B.

The tournament concludes tomorrow, Sunday, September 13.
