Western Region Team wins JTT Super-Regionals
Syracuse JTT

A group of 14 and under USA Team Tennis players from Syracuse traveled to Virginia Beach during the 2002 Columbus Day weekend to challenge teams from other parts of the country in the USA Team Tennis Super-Regionals. This team, and a team of 18 and under players, first won the Western Regional Tournament in Syracuse in early August. They went on to win the USA Team Tennis Sectionals held in Troy, NY on August 17. The 18 and under team can not advance beyond the Sectionals, but the 14 and under team moved on to Virginia Beach where they soundly defeated teams from five other USTA Sections, making them Northeast Super-Regional Champions.

Steve Pekich coordinated the Syracuse Junior Team Tennis League and the Western Regional Tournament. Debbie Magarell coached both teams, which were based out of Sedgwick Farm Tennis Club in Syracuse. Thanks to both Debbie and Steve for their hard work and congratulations to both teams!!
