IU men’s tennis rising junior Carson Haskins was named the Missouri High School Boys Tennis Player of the Decade by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Tuesday.

Haskins’ accomplishments at Parkway South High School in Manchester, Missouri, included a 94-0 record, a 188-0 record in sets and four singles state championships.

In high school, Haskins was ranked as high as the No.1 player in the nation.

In his freshman year for the Hoosiers, Haskins racked up 20 victories in singles matches and added nine doubles wins.

Last season, before the season’s cancellation due to the coronavirus pandemic, Haskins held a 12-6 overall record in singles matches, along with a 10-3 mark in doubles matches.

Haskins also provided the match-clinching point against the University of Notre Dame with a comeback victory against Tristan McCormick.
