A National Championship for Beacon Tennis

Written by Bayard Faithfull on Friday, March 21, 2014 07:54:40 EST:

On March 14-15, 2014, the All-American Invitational Boys Tennis Tournament took place in Corona del Mar, California, bringing together the best high school tennis teams in the country. For the last fourteen years, a California team has won the national championship. 2014 was different.

In the tournament, a college-format is used, meaning that the match includes three doubles matches followed by six singles matches. Beacon brought its top six players: four seniors and two juniors-all dedicated tennis players. Beacon was given third seed in the tournament, based on a strong performance last year.
