Two South Carolina teams finished among the best in the country last weekend at the USTA Junior Team Tennis National Championships.

The Lexington Legends, comprised of high school players in the Midlands, finished fourth in the 18 and under advanced division. Sixteen teams made the national championships in that division.

“They worked very hard and I’m proud of all they accomplished,” Legends coach Eric Jackson said.

The Hilton Head Island Landsharks finished in sixth place in the 18 and under intermediate division.

“These kids, many of them have played JTT with me for four years and it's just nice to watch them grow and get better every year," coach Eric Wammock said.
