Nick Darragh’s actions often have spoken just as loud as his words the last few years.

One of two seniors and a captain for the Olentangy Liberty High School boys tennis team, he has become one of the best cello players in the school and last summer started a tennis program for people with special needs.

His hope of studying medicine when he gets to college also backs up his values.

“I really like helping people,” Darragh said. “I learned that I think it was my great, great, great, great grandfather was (a pioneer in) radiology in the early 1900s, so that instantly made me interested in it. I did a small internship over the summer with the professor of radiology at Ohio State.”

Darragh won seven of his first 11 matches this season, including teaming with the program’s only other senior, co-captain and first-singles player Hoang Do, to win at first doubles during a 4-1 loss April 20 to Olentangy.
