Rising Star

Mason Meier
Age 13
Elkhorn Valley View Middle School

Having competed since the age of 8, Mason Meier has developed into one of the area’s rising young stars on the youth tennis scene.  Meier trains 4 or 5 nights a week to compete in both the 14s and 16s Divisions, where he has experienced extraordinary success over the last year.

In the fall of 2012, Meier won a 64-draw tournament in Wichita, competing in the 14s Division, and captured the title in both the 14s and 16s at the Omaha Holiday Tournament. This year he has added to those accomplishments by winning 6-of-7 matches in a top-32 tournament held in Omaha in June, and went undefeated (6-0 in singles and 6-0 in doubles) representing the district of Nebraska in May at a Wichita-section team competition. Meier’s performance helped fuel Nebraska’s Team crown at the event.

In July, Meier competed at a National Team event in Dallas, playing against the premier players from Florida, the Caribbean, Texas, and Southwest US sections. Nebraska did well, and Meier was able to come through with some solid wins.

Meier is also involved in select basketball and has played at a high level since the age of 8 in the Elkhorn area. Mason is the son of Dr. Craig and Beth Meier of Elkhorn, has an older sister Megan and a younger brother Miles.
