WHERE ARE THEY NOW...Jimmy Roebker

Jimmy Roebker
Class of 2010 - Covington Catholic High School

 Two-time Kentucky High School Singles State Champion and 2010 DecoTurf High School Tennis Team Championships All-Tournament Team selection, Jimmy Roebker is now making a name for himself at the collegiate level.  Roebker, a junior at Xavier University (Cincinnati, OH), has found a home just across the river from his alma mater Covington Catholic. The 2009 and 2010 Kentucky Singles State Champion led his Covington Catholic team to a 2010 State Runner-Up finish, garnered All-State honors and was named the Forcht Group of Kentucky Sportsmanship Award Winner. Roebker finished his senior year at Covington Catholic as a 5-star recruit according the the Tennis Recruiting Network and was ranked 38th in the nation. He was also named a prestigious National High School Tennis All American.

Jimmy quickly made an impact at the collegiate level posting a 19-16 overall singles record and 22-13 overall doubles record his freshman year earning Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year honors and being named a First Team All-Conference selection. The Fort Mitchell, Kentucky native posted a 29-11 overall singles record his sophomore year including an 18-5 dual match record at #1 singles. Roebker also posted a 24-9 overall doubles record his sophomore season leading the Musketeers to their second straight Atlantic 10 Championship match. Roebker finished the 2012 A-10 Championships undefeated in dual match play but the second seeded Musketeers fell to George Washington for the second straight season. His sophomore campaign earned Roebker First Team All-Conference honors for the second straight season.

Roebker got off to a great start in his junior year winning the singles competition at the ITA Summer Circuit at Purdue University in July. The Musketeers kick off their fall season on September 14th at the Western Michigan Hidden Dual Event in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
