Bakker Selected for Xavier U. Athletic Hall of Fame
Most of us know Rob as a top platform tennis player. Bakker is the Director of Racquet Sports at The Camargo Club and is currently ranked #5 nationally with partner Flip Goodspeed. But before paddle tennis, Rob was a two-sport standout at Xavier University. He played both soccer and tennis and was good enough to be selected All-Conference in both sports. For this and other accomplishments, the university has selected him for the Xavier University Athletic Hall of Fame. The induction will be on Friday, December 18.
