Share:   
Robert Stineman said balancing academics and tennis has been the guiding factor in his life.

The 17-year-old New Trier High School senior from Winnetka, Illinois plans to continue that balancing act after committing to attend Stanford University next fall. He's been successful both on and off the court. Last spring, Stineman won the Illinois High School Association State Singles Championship, and he has a weighted GPA of 5.2 in high school.

"I put a lot of thought into my college search and my number one priority has always been academics," Stineman said. "I have been a successful student-athlete at New Trier, and it is important for me to continue to balance school and tennis in college. I was looking for a school where I could thrive academically and continue to develop my tennis game.

"While I was on my official visit, I felt that Stanford is where I want to be for the next four years," said Stineman, who also took official visits to Harvard and Yale. "I felt a special connection with the school, coach (John) Whitlinger, and the tennis team. All around, Stanford is the perfect fit for me."

Stineman plans to study science, especially biology. He's also interested in pursuing a pre-med curriculum.

Stineman, the top ranked USTA Midwest Boys 18s boys player, is also ranked #8 among Tennis Recruiting Seniors; #14 in the USTA National Boys 18's.
