In their hunt for the National Championship the weekend of October 26-28, the Predators won their round robin matches 3-0 on Friday and Saturday morning. Then they earned a 53-41 semi final victory on Saturday afternoon. The Predators’ final match on Sunday morning was against the Easter Section team, the JAMF Drop Shots from New Rochelle, NY. The Predators made a strong showing and were up by 8 points going into the last match. However, Eastern’s JAMF Drop Shots fought back from a deficit to win the Championship, 45-44. All the kids played their hearts out and represented the Tennis House, Port Huron and the Midwest well with their efforts both on and off the court!
