Five varsity seniors on the ZCHS boys tennis team earned Academic All-State recognition for the 2017 season. Interim head coach Earl Allen said this is the first time since 2001 that a high school program has had five seniors recognized. The  group has a combined GPA of 4.35. Each student scored more than 1,300 on the SAT and 30 or higher on the ACT. Allen said the seniors raised more than $20,000 for the American Cancer Society and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital during their four years in the program.
