SMCTA launched a fall season of single gender Junior Team Tennis from Oct. 2nd through Nov. 20th on Sunday afternoons at St. Mary's Ryken HS. Teams in 12U Boys, 12U Girls, 18U Girls and 18U Boys divisions practiced and competed in singles and doubles match play. 12U head coach Brian Abell and 18U head coach Derek Sabedra were assisted by able parent volunteers, including Nathan Andaya, Diane Krasznay, Jill Huntington, and Susan Sokoloff. The winning 12U Girls team, the SMC Acers, advanced to the Mid-Atlantic Single Gender JTT Championships on Dec. 3 & 4 at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA (see article).
