TENNIS: Klock headed to UNOH

December 22, 2011

Klock on Tuesday signed a national letter of intent to play tennis for the University of Northwestern Ohio Racers next year.

“It was a good fit for me because it was close to home,” Klock said. “I got a good opportunity.”

“She’s put a lot of hours on the tennis court. I’m just tickled that she’s taking it to the college level,” he said.

Bertram was coming off a 28-point performance in Saturday’s 59-57 loss to the St. Henry Redskins.
