Photograph article dated March 24, 1961 partially reads, "An impressively quiet, serious yet affable youn [sic] man with a purpose in life, that's 18-year-old Chuck Rombeau, the No. 1 tennis player at Valley College where it begins to look as though coach Mark Mathews may have come up with the finest court team ever produced by the Monarchs... I gather, too, that Rombeau is modest about his talents, slightly averse to talking about his accomplishments which include two city high school singles championships, the 1958 United States hard court title, and a second in the National Clay Courts event when he was under 15 years of age."
