Isaac Triplett, Wabash resident and professional tennis instructor, captured back to back titles on consecutive weekends. 

At the Hot Dog Doubles Tennis Tournament in Frankfort on July 28-30, he and doubles partner Steve Minner, of Carmel, took the men's 45 and over doubles title. 

"It was tricky playing in the championship match since I was playing with a fellow tennis pro and friend of over 30 years.  Steve and I met over 30 years ago at a tennis tournament and have been friends ever since.  I just wanted to play well for a good friend and that can put extra pressure on you.  Tennis is truly the sport for a life time," Triplett said. 

Then at the Kokomo Wildkat Tennis Championships Triplett took the 35 and over singles division title. 

"I have learned to listen to my body more now, at my age it's more about managing injuries than practicing too much," Triplett said. 

The Kokomo tournament was Aug. 4-6.
