SUBMITTED BY PHIL WOLFE for the Neighborhood Extra
Haley Wagoner and Patrick McCracken will represent Nebraska at the upcoming US Games in Orlando, Florida.
The Games are held every four years and Lincoln hosted them in 2010. Patrick, 26, is participating for the first time. He looks forward to tougher competition and makes friends with people from across the country. He is proud to represent his state.
Haley, 32, is representing Nebraska for the second time. She is looking forward to renewing the friendships she has made in previous years while playing at a high level.
They will leave Lincoln on June 4 for the week-long event, which will be attended by 5,500 athletes and coaches from 50 states.
McCracken and Wagoner thank those who support them financially: friends, family, Duncan Aviation and Lululemon. They also thank their coaches Nancy Samson, Joe Meyers and Phil Wolfe.
McCracken and Wagoner came through the Lincoln Tennis Buddies program. Tennis Buddies is accepting new athletes and volunteers. Contact Phil Wolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
