JMTA Players Record Numerous Tournament Wins over Father’s Day Weekend!

USTA Tournament Results 6/17-6/19

Over Father’s Day weekend, the players of the JMTA won a total of 10 tournaments, despite the fact that a large number of our high school aged players were participating in the first annual JMTA College Recruiting Combine; which showcased talent from all over the country and world to over 100 college coaches.

At the Level 1B FS Tennis Center June Challenger, Clemence Balzano claimed the Girls’ 18 title. In her run to the title, Balzano defeated both the #1 and #2 seeds in straight sets. In other Level 1B action at the Haffen Park June Challenger, the JMTA had two winners. First, in the Girls’ 16 competition, Shawnte Beale defeated the #1 seed in the Semifinals, and the #2 seed in the Finals, while Alexander Aney won the Boys’ 12 title. Claiming the Boys’ 14 title at the Level 1B Ross Late June Challenger was Sidharth Chawla. This tournament win marked Chawla’s fourth tournament win of 2016. Also winning in their respective divisions at the Level 1B Ross Late June Challenger were Charlie Liss (Girls’ 12) and Theodore Murphy (Boys’ 12). Our last Level 1B winner of the weekend was Lev Seidman, who defeated fellow JMTA player and #1 seed Jack Kennedy in the Finals of the Level 1B World Gym June Classic to claim the Boys’ 10 title.

At the Level 2 Hardscrabble June Open, Dana Livson claimed the Girls’ 14 title. In Boys’ 12 action at the Level 2 SPORTIME King’s Park June Open, Jeffery Rosario won the Boys’ 12 title.
