IT’S SUMMERTIME IN MEDICAL LAKE. CURTIS KENADY @ 41.23W8 22 I AM GONNA BE A SOPHOMORE. SO I HAVE PLAYED ONE SEASON OF TENNIS. BROTHERS BRAD AND CURTIS KENADY ARE UP EARLY FOR GOOD MORNING NORTHWEST – PROMOTING AN EVENT THEY TRULY LOVE. BRAD KENADY @ 42.04W9 22 IT’S SO FUN JUST COMING AND SEEING LIKE KIDS AND PEOPLE OF ALL AGES LEARNING TO PLAY TENNIS. BUT TALKING TEENAGERS INTO GETTING UP AT 4 AM WHILE ON SUMMER VACATION… NAT – HIT TENNIS BALLW10 22 THAT’S A JOB FOR THIS MAN… LEROY LEMASTER @ 35.56W11 22 OH NICE! CURTIS KENADY @ 42.34W12 22 HE IS JUST. LEROY IS REALLY SWEET AND IT’S JUST AWESOME THAT HE IS DOING THE TENNIS-A-THON. LEROY LEMASTERS IS THE KIND OF COACH PARENTS HOPE FOR WHEN GETTING THEIR KIDS INTO SPORTS. NAT BASKET LID @ 18.31W13 22 LEROY LEMASTER @ 25.58W14 22 IT’S A FUN GAME. IF YOU CAN’T HAVE FUN PLAYING TENNIS THAN YOU SHOULDN’T BE PLAYING IT. HE’S BEEN SHAPING YOUNG ATHLETES ON THE WEST PLAINS FOR DECADES. BRAD KENADY @ 41.15W15 22 I FEEL LIKE I HAVE ADVANCED SINCE I STARTED BUT I STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. AND ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO, LEMASTERS AND OTHER MEDICAL LAKE COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAME UP WITH A PLAN A 24-HOUR TENNIS-A-THON. LEROY LEMASTER @ 26.32W16 24 IT WAS STARTED BY SOMEBODY WHO WANTED TO RAISE MONEY FOR OUR FOODBANK HERE IN MEDICAL LAKE. AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN WE DECIDED, OK THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO DO IT. ROUND THE CLOCK TENNIS LESSONS, MOSTLY FOR KIDS BUT ALSO ADULTS. AND IN THOSE 20 YEARS, THE UNIQUE EVENT HAS GROWN. BENEFITING THE LOCAL FOOD BANK, OUTREACH PROGRAM, AND TENNIS TEAM. IN A BIG WAY. LEROY LEMASTER @ 27.23W17 22 LAST YEAR WE FIGURED UP THAT WE HAVE PROBABLY BROUGHT IN 85-THOUSAND DOLLARS SINCE WE STARTED. AS LIVE @ 34.46W18 24 AND A BIG PART OF THE 24 HOUR TENNIS-A-THON: THE BALL BOUNCING COMPETITION. MY FRIEND CURTIS HERE HAS WON IT THREE TIMES — THE WORLD RECORD: AN HOUR AND TWENTY FIVE MINUTES. BUT OF COURSE THERE IS A LOT MORE THAN JUST TENNIS HAPPENING HERE IN MEDICAL LAKE TOMORROW. FACE PAINTING, MUSIC, FOOD, AND GAMES. ALL RIGHT HERE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL TENNIS COURTS. AND JUST LIKE THE KIDS HE COACHES. I’LL BET THAT IF YOU HUNG AROUND LEROY LONG ENOUGH. YOU’D PROBABLY LEARN MORE THAN JUST GOOD FORM. LEROY LEMASTER @ 25.43W19 22 I STARTED PLAYING IN 1950 AND HERE WE ARE IN 2016 SO THAT IS WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF YOU STICK WITH IT. AS FOR ME… NAT – FAILW20 22 I”LL HANG UP MY RACKET AFTER TODAY… LEROY LEMASTER @ 28.44W21 22 CASEY HAS REALLY IMPROVED IN THE LAST HALF HOUR. LAUGHS IN MEDICAL LAKE, CASEY LUND, KXLY 4 NEWS.
