    The Whiting Parks Department added five brand new courts to their new Sports Recreation Complex. On April 27, 2013 a special ceremony was held to unveil the new parks department sign naming the courts after Mary Lou Piatek Daniels who was born in Whiting, IN and graduated from Whiting High School where she played on the boys high school team (No girls team at that time.). She also played on the Trinity University college team before turning professional. Mary Lou enjoyed a fifteen-year professional career on the women’s tour and now resides in Munster, IN. She is a life member of the USTA—an honor bestowed on her after she won the national Girls 18’s hard court championships.
