August 10 – 12: 55 teams from Maryland, Virginia and DC competed at the Tennis Center at College Park for the USTA Mid-Atlantic Sectional Jr. Team Tennis (JTT) Championships. Teams competed in eight possible age divisions. Maryland placed first in the 14U Advanced, 14U Intermediate, 10U Advanced and 10U Intermediate divisions.
Congratulations go out to Team Eclipse (14U Adv.) and Team Static Noize (14U Int.). Both teams come from a very strong JTT program at Green Spring Racquet Club in Baltimore. They will represent Mid-Atlantic/Maryland at the National Championships October 18-21 in South Carolina!
Congratulations also go to the Tennis Terminators (10U Adv.) and Team Tornadoes (10U Int.) for winning the 2012 JTT Sectional Championships. Both of these teams also come from a strong JTT program at the Tennis Center College Park (TCCP) where consistent use of the QuickStart format for 10 and Under Tennis is clearly paying off as demonstrated by the skill of these developing, young players.
Also very impressive, five Maryland 2nd place teams:
18U Int. GSRC team SHOCKS
14U Int. PGTEF Team BLUE
12U Adv. TCCP RED LIONS
10U Adv. TCCP TENNIS TERMINATORS
10U Int. TCCP ACES
Thanks to all who came out to play, watch, and work! Despite the rain challenges, we completed a very well-run tournament that featured amazing tennis, teamwork, and sportsmanship by our Maryland players, captains, and coaches.
