Howell will be playing tennis at the University of the Cumberlands

Aaron Howell has recently signed a letter-of-intent to continue his education and tennis careers at the University of the Cumberlands (formerly Cumberland College), in Williamsburg, Ky.

The Batavia High School senior, the son of Dale and Betty Howell, will be playing his third varsity season on the Bulldog courts. He began his prep career at McNicholas High School where he also lettered in the sport.

Howell played in the first singles position much of the time in his first three seasons of varsity competition and has earned a berth on the Southern Buckeye Conference National Division all-star team.

He has found the time to be very active in non-athletic school activities including the various types of instrumental bands, prom committee, a senior mentor, vice-president of the senior class, and he has also served as an announcer at home girls basketball games and a statistician for both the girls and boys basketball teams and the volleyball team.
