Rice and Au lost 7:9 in last Sunday’s final against the #2 seeds Trevor Nguyen of Westminster and Alexander Tolmachev Nguyen of San Diego at the Kramer Club at Rolling Hills Estates, Calif. Rice also made it through to the quarterfinals in singles, winning against the 5 and 9 seeds.

Rice is an honor student and hopes to play collegiate tennis. He’s also the regional president of Second Serve, a community service organization that collects and distributes used tennis equipment to Title I schools and local Boys and Girls Clubs.
