USA Team Tennis Youth State Championship

August 17, 2004 02:24 PM

This year’s USA Team Tennis Youth State Championships were held July 31 through August 1 at the Lexington County Tennis Complex. The event was a tremendous success providing hours of quality youth tennis over the weekend. These championships were offered in five divisions 12’s Intermediates, 14’s Intermediates and Advanced, and 18’s Intermediates and Advanced.

Walterboro took the 12’s Intermediate state championship with a total of 103 games won and 49 lost. Walterboro competed in a division with four other teams that were stacked with competition.

The 14’s Intermediate division consisted of two flights, A and B. Each flight had four teams competing with the winner of each flight facing off in the championship match. The First Community Bank team won Flight A, while the Quail Hollow team took the victory in Flight B. First Community Bank won 28 games and lost only 16 to bring home the state title in its respective division.

The 14’s Advanced division consisted of only two teams, Wildewood Crush and Pine Forest. Wildewood Crush defeated the Pine Forest team to capture the state championship. They won 113 games while losing just 13.

The 18’s Intermediate division saw five good teams compete against one another. The Quail Hollow Peppers team pulled out a close victory in a division that kept the scores close during the entire weekend. Quail Hollow Peppers won 122 games and lost 106.

In the 18’s Advanced division Sumter Red took the championship in a landslide, as they were the only team competing in the division.

Most Valuable and Sportsmanship Awards were given out at the conclusion of the tournament. Justin Reznick from the GOTCHA program in Greenville won the MVP award while Tyler Estes, also from the GOTCHA program in Greenville won the Sportsmanship Award.

The USA Team Tennis Sectionals will be held August 13-15, 2004 in Chattanooga, TN. Many of the teams that won the state championship for their division will be competing in this tournament.

And last but certainly not least, we at the USTA South Carolina would like to send out a special thank you to all of our volunteers as well as our sponsor Subway, for helping us put on this great tournament that benefits the kids and the growth and development of tennis.
