The U.S. National Teams Committee has approved Coach Dave Ellis’ selection of Rhonda Rajsich, Janel Tisinger, Thomas Carter and David Horn to represent the U.S. at the 2018 Pan American Championships in Temuco, Chile, March 23-31, 2018. All team members will play Singles and Doubles divisions.
Rhonda returns to the Pan American Championships as defending Singles Champion. She renews her partnership with Janel Tisinger after a four year hiatus. This duo won the Pan American Championship Doubles title in 2007.
David Horn returns for the second year in a row to the Pan American Championship, looking to improve upon his silver medal in Doubles last year. His partner will be first time National Team member and Intercollegiate Champion Thomas Carter. With the new comer playing left-handed and the veteran a great retriever on the right side, look for this pair to play well together.
The Team will be led by long time U.S. National Adult Team Coach Dave Ellis. Rounding out the delegation are Cheryl Kirk (Team Leader) and Brent Huff (Medical Trainer).
