Point guard Lester Medford  was a dazzling player at Amphitheater High School, leading the Panthers to the 2011 state championship (29-2 mark). He became an All-ACCAC player at Arizona Western College in Yuma, then transferred to Pima College last year. But he didn’t qualify and left PCC for Indian Hills Community College in Iowa. Medford is taking a recruiting visit to Iowa State this week. … Oro Valley’s Robert Seby , who is the leading boys tennis prospect in Southern Arizona since former Wimbledon doubles champion Jim Grabb 30 years ago, qualified for the U.S. Open national playoffs late last month. Seby, who had just gone 8-0 to win the USTA Boys 18 singles regionals, was matched against a pro, Damon Gooch , in the play-in event, and lost 6-2, 6-2. Seby is only 16, playing against those two years older, or more. He was the youngest player in the men’s U.S. Open draw. He will not play high school tennis.
