HENRY LOVETT

A graduating senior at Palisades High, Henry has attained the No. 1 ranking in the Southern California Tennis Association Boys 18 singles standings—a list that includes 493 eligible players. Henry played No. 1 singles for the Dolphins this spring, reaching the semifinals in Ojai, leading the Dolphins to their 11th straight City team title and winning the City Individual singles championship. The Tulane signee, who skipped his junior year at Palisades to build up his USTA points, paired with Diego Huttepain to win the City doubles crown as a freshman and partnered with Lincoln Bellamy to repeat as doubles champion as a sophomore.
