ROCHELLE — When the other nine schools in the NIB-12 with tennis teams showed up at Rochelle Township High School for the varsity boys’ conference championship, Rochelle head coach Mike Pence knew his team would be ready. And the Hubs didn’t let their coach down.

“I was so proud of our team,” Pence said about the Hubs’ sixth place finish. “Everyone came ready to play, and it showed on the court.

These kids are so much fun to watch.”
