On April 3, Westmont College announced that Cate School senior Ethan Ha will play tennis at the school beginning in 2020. Ha confirmed his commitment via Facebook Messenger on April 6.
Ha, a three-time Tri-Valley League singles champion, has been a force in high school tennis since teaming up as a freshman with his brother Kevin for the Rams. In 2017, he helped lead the Rams to the CIF-Southern Section Division III semifinals. “The coaches are very smart and kind,” said Ha. “Assistant coach Christian Mathis has been like a big brother to me and has always been someone I could rely on. Westmont is also 15 minutes away from home and it means I can be close to my family and my friends, who have become a second family for me.”
