usta sectionalThe fairytale run has ended: we’re 3:2 in the sectionals 3 court wins shy.
Only the winners and the runner ups receive trophy. I promised my troop that I’ll order them identical pieces from the trophy store in town, some time soon.
THANK you so much for being part of this team and I appreciated your contribution very much, and for putting up with me over the past six months.
