2008 JTT National Championship-Success, Surprises and Surgery

November 6, 2008 04:24 AM

Congratulations to the 18 and Under Intermediate team that competed in the National Championship in Mobile, Alabama, October 30-November 2. Wisconsin District is proud of their 5th place finish and the story of the weekend.

With high hopes, the team from Le Club Racquet and Fitness Club was ready to avenge their 2nd place finish at the 2007 National Championship. With 3 players from last year’s team returning and ready to compete, the expectations were high.

Everything changed on Friday morning when their top player, Evan was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. Fortunately, Evan is doing fine and his team pulled together with both concern and determination.

As a result of losing a player, the Le Club team began each match 12 games down. They beat all three teams in their flight even after giving them a 12 game start. Le Club was 5-0 winning every match and completing the year with a 20-0 record!

Congratulations to Le Club Team! Read more about their story here.
