Future Connetquot High School athletes are brushing up on their skills during the 2018 Thunder Tennis Academy, a summer camp open to grades K-12 run by coach Ryan Cavanagh.

More than 130 campers, plus coaches and instructors, are taking part in the Academy, which runs from July 5 to Aug. 16. In addition to teaching skills, the program is helping to raise money for financial awards given to graduating seniors that have been a part of the Connetquot High School varsity tennis program. 

The Jim Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship is named in honor of the longtime teacher and Connetquot High School tennis coach. To date, more than $5,000 has been awarded to qualifying students, according to coach Cavanagh.
