Greg Ponchot head shotGreg Ponchot g77

Greg was an outstanding athlete who is best remembered for his tennis play. He played at number one singles, Larry “Sugar Bear” Lewis g76 played at number two, and the two teamed up at the number one doubles spot. The two rarely lost in either singles or doubles, and if the team hadn’t already won by the time the doubles competition began, their doubles play often clinched the victory for the Falcons. Larry, himself a Fort Wayne Hall of Fame athlete, always considered Greg by far the best tennis player in FWBC history. Read his full citation by clicking here.
