HARD WORK PAYS OFF: Undefeated Rongos may lead NHC

May 9, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — “The sky is the limit for Celine.”

Kathleen Myers, Columbia City’s head tennis coach, believes in her No. 1 singles player.

But who wouldn’t?

Celine Rongos is undefeated after 14 matches, topping all Northeast Hoosier Conference opponents that she’s faced.

It’s not uncommon to see a 6-0, 6-0 score next to Rongos’ name — but the wins didn’t come without hard work.
