July 15, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - Kerry Marshall, boy's tennis coach at Pike High School in Indianapolis, "just wishes he had [Scott] Sauer for one more season. Sauer, who played No. 2 singles for Pike as a senior last fall, will play tennis for DePauw University," notes today's Indianapolis Star. The story describes how the 6-foot-5-inch Sauer is working this summer to improve his game. "He's taken more responsibility for ending the point himself now," Coach Marshall tells the newspaper. "He has a little more quickness. I think he's going to make a major contribution at DePauw. I think he can be one of the best to play there."

Mark Ambrogi writes, "Sauer, who is undecided on his major, had considered attending Indiana University. 'But I really liked DePauw, and the bonus is the fact I can play tennis there,' Sauer said ... [He] has been playing on Marshall's 4.5 United States Tennis Association league team this summer. He also is teaching tennis at Woodstock Country Club and hitting regularly with friends. The DePauw tennis team plays a light schedule in the fall, but the main season will be in the spring. Sauer said his main goal for the rest of the summer is to practice even more. 'I'm just trying to get more solid,' he said. 'There's not any part of my game that I'm content with. I'm trying to get everything better. I want to be an all-court player.'"
