St. Benedict (SBA) High School freshman Joshua Beer, a member of the SBA Tennis Team, was a ball boy for the Memphis Open Tennis Tournament in February.
Ball boys and girls are encouraged to raise money for St. Jude. Joshua raised the most ($7,000) and SBA helped him during Catholic Schools Week with an "out of uniform" day. He presented the check to St. Jude at the tournament on Saturday. His success gave him the opportunity to flip the coin at the opening of the semi-finals match.
He also won a trip to New York to be a ball boy for the Paribas Celebrity Showdown at Madison Square Garden where 8 pro tennis players competed for charity in one day of tennis. He was selected for the Lleyton Hewitt- Andy Roddick match.
