Our committee has met and decided on the "Little Mo" Sportsmanship Awards for our 2013 Mid- Atlantic Sectional Championship.
Maureen Connolly, the first American women to win all four Grand Slam tournaments during the same calender year, would be very proud of our players. We certainly were overwhelmed with the quality of play and the good spirit of competition of our players. Our players managed their courts, made their best line calls, were respectful of their opponents and seemed to truly enjoy the camaraderie at our tournament.It was nice to hear players saying "Good Shot" to their opponents.
We had over 60 nominations for the coveted sportsmanship awards. Many players received numerous nominations. Even the nomination of another player further demonstrated really good spirit of players in the Mid Atlantic area and our guests from other sections.
The players that were chosen by our committee were Harrison Schultz and Shibani Rana. Congratulations to Harrison and Shibani!
We hope everyone continues to improve their tennis and grow as competitors.
