Liu, Dublin Jerome looking for more postseason success

After competing as a reserve for the Dublin Jerome boys tennis team as a freshman, senior Kevin Liu raised his level of play and emerged as a top contributor for the Celtics over the last two seasons.

Liu hopes to close his prep career with a return trip to the Division I state tournament May 27 and 28 at Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason.

Last season, Liu teamed with Eli Wiblin in doubles to reach state, where they lost their only match. Wiblin, a senior, has played second and third singles this season.

“It’s probably because I switched clubs and I’ve put a lot more effort and time in,” Liu said of his progress in the sport. “The coaches have done a lot with developing my shots and also my game strategy-wise. Coach (Ken) Berlin helps us keep a calmer head and keeps us focused in a match. He’s taught us how to position ourselves in doubles. ”
