Immaculata’s James Cha was recently recognized with a honorable mention selection to the Kansas City Star All-Metro Tennis Team for the spring of 2012.

Cha earned fourth place at the state tournament last May, which was the highest award by an Immaculata tennis player in more than 13 years.

The Raider has medaled two years in a row — ninth place as a freshman and fourth as a sophomore.

James is one of the most underrated tennis players in the area.

Every time I watch him play, his foot speed is what really stands out to me. Before a ball is even hit, he already seems to be in motion to where its going to land.

Congrats James — well deserved.
