WTT Junior Nationals

RCC got 3rd place at the World Team Tennis Junior Nationals last week in San Diego.  The team was made up of Colten Clark, Jonathan Zhuravel, Stu Brdicka, Alex Cash, Kathleen Jones and Paige Kompa.

The team which had to save multiple match points at Midwest to qualify, defeated Eastern, OC Breakers and Hawaii in their flight.  They fell in a close match to California Coast Crushers in the semifinals 39-34 after forcing overtime.  The most exciting match came in the match for 3rd place, as the Midwest RCC team went into the last 2 courts of Mixed doubles trailing by 13 games.  Colten and Kathleen won 6-1 and then Paige and Stu won 6-1 on the designated court forcing overtime.  They saved match points and won 3 more games to force a sudden death tiebreaker, and won the tiebreaker 7-5 for 3rd place over Intermountain 37-36.
