2014 March Madness Mixed Mixer Tournament:
March 15, 2014

Our first tournament of the year was held on March 15, 2014. This March Madness tournament was a Mixed Mixer with changing of partners, opponents, and courts for every round. There were several new faces among the contestants mixing seamlessly with many veterans. A light breakfast was provided with fruit and bars. After three exciting rounds, the participants and volunteers enjoyed a wonderful salad bar lunch with barbecued meats, vegetables, and other goodies as well as some divine desserts. The winner for the women was Nancy Rhoads with Lisa Cabassa just one point shy of the top spot. The winner for the men was Johnny Sendejo. We had a tie with the men for the runner-up position so there was a 10-point tie breaker played to crown a winner. William Van Cleave and Patrick McBrearty were paired up with the winners from the women's side and a very close set was played. The tandem of McBrearty/Cabassa came out on top. Our winners and runners up received gift certificates to Rosie's on the Beach for their efforts. Congratulations to our winners and all our participants. And a thank you to our volunteers and participants for making it another marvelous Morgan Hill event.

Fall Juniors Tournament:
Oct. 16, 2013
We had a beautiful fall morning for MHTC's annual Fall tournament for our local juniors players, held on Saturday, October 12. The men's draw was dominated by varsity players from Gilroy's Christopher High School (thanks coach Pat McBrearty for encouraging them to come out!) We were also delighted to have a few up and coming younger players join the draw: Brad and Zach Schroeck [St. Catherine's] who were celebrating their 14th birthday that very day (yes, twins, and their mom is still trying to convince them to play doubles together like the Brian brothers); and 10-year-old Ian Kelley-Collins, who trains at Courtside in Los Gatos and has some impressive strokes that will make him a player to reckon with when he's gained a couple years and inches in height! In the end, it was once again San Benito High's Aaron Francis [see photo] who took home the winner's trophy, with CHS player Josh Hernandez coming in a close second. It has been really fun to watch these players' games develop over the past year or two. We only had two girls turn out this tournament, teammates from Oakwood School in Morgan Hill. Katarina Johnson and Marie Verbuckmoes split sets with Marie coming out on top in a 10-point super tiebreak to settle the match. Well done, ladies! Hopefully we'll have more gals turning out in Spring when they're not so busy with their high school match play.
