Harrington signs with Meridian CC
Walt Harrington put pen to paper May 9, preparing for his post-secondary education at Meridian Community College.
Harrington will attend the school and signed a letter of intent to play tennis for the Eagles. He is currently a member of the Hilltopper tennis team and just wrapped up his high school career with a third place State Tournament finish in boy’s doubles with partner, Chase Eldridge.
Harrington said touring the campus helped solidify his decision.
“They have a good tennis program and good facilities,” Harrington said.
Mike Blissard has worked with the high school tennis team and with several players during tournament play and had words of praise for Harrington’s dedication to the sport.
“I have been involved in his development for about three years,” Blissard said. “His game has elevated to one of the best junior players in the state. I’m just glad I could be around to watch him grow as a player and as an outstanding young man.”
Blissard is looking forward to watching Harrington’s progress at the post-secondary level.
“I’ll be turning him over to a great tennis program with a great coach that will get him to an ever greater level of play,” Blissard said. “He will still practice with Ezra and myself through the summer and on weekends so I hope to still have some influence on him. Look out Meridian, here comes Walt!”
Harrington will graduate Houston High School May 22 and is the son of Hank and Lori Harrington of Houston.
