Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week: Jacob Saunders


Sophomore Jacob Saunders helped the Hunt High boys tennis team win its third straight match to start the season last week, making him this week’s Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.

Jacob won his No. 4 singles match and teamed with Conor Wetzel to win at No. 3 doubles as the Warriors stopped Nash Central 7-2 for their second 3-A Big East Conference win. Jacob improved to 3-0 in singles before playing doubles for the first time with Conor.

Jacob holds a weighted grade point average of 4.4 at Hunt where he is a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Club UNIFY and the Student Booster Club.
