Wellington’s Jax Cornejo – Athlete Spotlight Presented By KTA

By Matt Browning

While high finishes and winning medals are important to Wellington boys tennis player Jax Cornejo, getting better each and every day is what he focuses on.

If he can improve after each practice and meet, then he thinks the results will take care of themselves.

“I think making it to state and getting as far as I did last year or even farther would be successful for me,” Cornejo said. “Honestly, just the improvement and progress I’ve made and the memories during my tennis seasons have been amazing, so those aspects are part of success for me as well.”

Controlling his game and making it more consistent were what Cornejo focused on improving over the offseason.

“I’ve been working over the winter with playing and lessons to improve my groundstrokes and overall control of a point,” Cornejo said.

Cornejo took fourth in the Class 4A singles portion of the state tournament last season, but the memories he has made with his teammates will last a lifetime.

“I’m really excited to just go out and make memories with the team,” Cornejo said. “The last couple seasons have been really fun with everybody and I’m sure that will keep up this year. I’m also excited to play the game and see how far I can go.”
