Athlete of the Week: Wausau West's Ben Lahren


Wausau West held its tennis tournament this past weekend, and the Warriors' top player took down every one of his singles matches.

Ben Lahren from Wausau West has had an incredible week on the tennis court.  He's won all four of his matches, and hasn't lost more than two games in each of those matches.  

That's dominance.  

Ben is the number one for the Warriors, meaning he faces the best player from every team they face.  But it's that kind of competition he lives for.  

What he holds over his opponents is his fierce forehand.  Ben hits the ball hard and his superior footwork allows him to get in position wherever he is on the court.  

What's helped Ben in tennis has been his work on the soccer pitch.  Ben is the goalie for West.  He's learned footwork and reaction time that has made him a better tennis player.  

He hopes it'll transfer into another sectional appearance this season.
