Central Crossing’s Semchishin, Sinyuk bond on, off the court

Seniors Ruth Semchishin and Anna Sinyuk, friends since fourth grade, are switching between Central Crossing's first and second singles.  Both play the violin and are members of the Key Club and the National Honor Society.

Ruth Semchishin and Anna Sinyuk seem inseparable, whether on or off the tennis court.

The seniors alternated between the first and second singles in their fourth season playing for the Central Crossing women’s team, but they also have other similar interests. Both play violin in the school orchestra and are members of the Key Club and the National Honor Society.

Tennis has become another way for friends to spend time together.

“I didn’t play any sports before high school, and Ruth just talked me into[playing tennis],” said Sinyuk, who is treasurer of the Key Club and the National Honor Society. “I just wanted to do what Ruth did.

“I was a shy kid in high school and I followed Ruth around. We’ve been friends since fourth grade, when our family moved to the same neighborhood (as Semchishin).”
