Daytona sectional championship...were back!!

We had tons of fun in Daytona this last weekend, August 5-8th. St. Johns Tennis Academy entered into the summer sectional tournament with 5 teams (U14 beginner, U14 intermediate, U18 intermediate and two U18 advanced). It's a time to go and compete against all the other junior team tennis teams in the state of Florida. Most of us chose to stay in local hotels in the area of LPGA Boulevard in Daytona Beach where we can hang out with each other, as teams, when were not playing tennis and wake up as early as 7:00a.m. to play early matches beginning at 8:00a.m. Most of our teams played 2-3 matches per day and were absolutely exhausted by Sunday. It's a full weekend of sun, tennis, friends and family.

Most of our teams did pretty well. The winners of each division that finish in 1st place are eligible for Nationals competition located in Alabama in the fall. Our U18 advance team won first place last fall and advanced to Nationals winning 2nd place. Were very proud of that and you can see the banner in which they were awarded hung at the tennis courts at Mills Field. We hope to do it again next season.
