RCC 14s Midwest Champions
RCC sent 8 teams to the Midwest JTT Championships last weekend in Indianapolis. Of the 4 teams to qualify for Nationals, 3 of them were from the Racquet Club. The 14s Int, along with the 14s and 18s Advanced teams all won and qualified to go Nationals in Columbia, South Carolina.
The 14s Int lost to Grant County in their flight, but they were the one 2nd place team to make the semifinals. They then defeated the same Grant County team in the semifinals 26 – 24, highlighted by a 8-0 win in Girls Singles by Wendy Shi. They defeated Five Star in the Finals by a wider margin. The team coached by Ken Berlin and Daniel Lartey was made up of Nathan Yu, Nick Geelan, Sam Routzahn, Shivesh Sankar, Alex Graham, Emma Wang, Emma Wood, Noah Mizer and Wendy Shi. Nathan Yu was also on the team that went to Nationals last year.
