LIBERAL, Kan. — Seward County Community College tennis player Nicolas Rousset is headed to Division I University of Arkansas.
Rousset is quite possibly the most successful player to ever pick up a racquet for the Seward tennis program. In his freshman year alone, he racked up a pair of Region VI championships at No. 1 Singles and No. 1 Doubles, nabbed a third-place finish in both the No. 1 doubles and singles spots at the 2018 NJCAA National Tourney and was named both doubles and singles ITA All-American.
There was no sophomore jinx for Rousset, who won the ITA JUCO Singles Nationals Championship in the Fall of 2018 to become the first Saint to ever accomplish that feat. Rousset went 31-7 in singles and 12-3 during his sophomore season while also capturing two more Region VI titles in the process.
Rousset finished his career with a combined record of 45-12 in singles and 26-8 in doubles. His 45 singles victories make Rousset the winningest Saint of all time.
Rousset will join a Razorback squad that went 15-15 on the season with a Southeastern Conference record of 3-9. Rousset will looking to continue to make history by helping Arkansas seek their first SEC title.
