Rich River tennis player Erik Holt-Crossman was recently named the best athlete for tennis at the Bendigo Bank Academy of Sport presentations last month.
Throughout last season, the 17-year-old played 127 singles matches, winning 91 and recorded another good strike rate among his 66 doubles matches.
He won the Victorian Junior Grasscourt Championships earlier this year and triumphed at Warrnambool and at Tennis Victoria’s Age Championships in 2013.
He also recorded a 14.3 on the beep test, which was an ‘‘outstanding’’ result, academy executive officer Graham Gordon said.
The Bendigo academy is one of six across Victoria, which has programs in baseball, cycling, golf, soccer, tennis, netball and volleyball, while it is looking introducing at clay target shooting, yachting, swimming and rugby union.

The academy also educates the athletes with a career education program and provides information on sports psychology, nutrition, podiatry, public speaking, social media, injury management, ASADA, strength and condition fitness testing programs and everyone has a musculoskeletal screen done.
