Harris Foulkes (I) Tops a Long List of Spring Athletic Honors

Varsity Tennis senior and co-captain Harris Foulkes was named the Independent School League MVP and a Boston Globe All-Scholastic student-athlete this spring for his performance and leadership on the court. In his time at R.L., Harris had a significant role on two ISL Championship Teams, and he is the only Roxbury Latin player to have ever played in three New England Class B team finals.

Harris and co-captain Brendan Jimenez (II) helped lead the team to an overall season record of 18-2, and to a second place finish in the New England Championships. Season highlights included Harris finishing 27 and 1 at #1 singles in the ISL and winning all of his singles in the New England Tournament. Joey Barrett (III) finished undefeated in the ISL at #2 singles, and Walker Oberg (IV) was the only player on the team to be undefeated in singles in both the ISL and in the New England’s. (The last freshman to do that was Harris Foulkes.)
 
Long-time head coach Ousmane Diop describes Harris as one of “the best players to have ever come to R.L. He is the smartest player and the best doubles player we have ever had. To see him manage a match and attack, in the most precise way, the weaknesses of other players is a thing of beauty. Harris is irreplaceable. I will miss him as a player, as a captain, and more importantly as a person. He is one of the kindest and most humble players I have ever coached.
 
“This season was also a success because of the way our players conducted themselves on the court. They always worked hard and were graceful in victories and in defeats. I have never received more compliments from other coaches about the character of our team than I did this year, which says a lot about the leadership of Brendan and Harris.”
