Recent East Peoria High School graduate Andrew Partain has recently signed a letter of intent to continue his tennis career at Kaskaskia College.
Ellis was a two year captain at East Peoria and was named to the All-Conference Team his senior year.
KC Coach Valjean Lueking says, “Jacob comes to KC after a successful high school career in East Peoria. Jacob will bring his strong game to KC and will contribute immediately; he has been on the radar as a prospective athlete for some time. KC is fortunate to sign such a quality player.”
