Auburn Riverside’s Colby Tong is the North Puget Sound League Olympic Division Player of the Year.

For the senior tennis standout, it represents a four-peat for capturing the award as the league’s top singles player since he entered as a freshman in 2014.

Colby just completed the regular season and three-day postseason tournament undefeated. He also led Auburn Riverside to a three-peat league championship last year while winning as the top tennis school three consecutive times since 2014.

This year, Auburn Riverside lost the 4A NPSL Olympic championship to Thomas Jefferson but came close in a tightly contested season with a record of 12-2 to TJ’s 13-1.

Colby is looking forward to improve on his eighth-place finish out of 16 last year at the upcoming state championship. He has flourished under the coaching of Bruce Diehl, a local tennis coaching legend.

Colby, son of Roy and Pairy Tong, is a straight-A student.
