It was a busy spring for the 12U Barracudas and the 10U Cheetahs Team Tennis kids. Our tennis family came together at Britton Christian Church on Wednesday evening to celebrate and honor our kids who have worked so hard this spring. It was also an opportunity for our tennis families to express their appreciation for our coaches who give so much to help our kids both on the court and off.
First to be recognized were the 12U BCC Barracudas. All of the Barracudas started out on our 10U Cheetahs team just two years ago. If you combine their achievements as Cheetahs, and now as Barracudas, they are four time Team Tennis City Champions. They also won the 10U 2018 State Championship held last summer in Tulsa.
During the spring season the Barracudas posted a perfect 6-0 mark. They won 20 of 24 individual matches. Most impressive is that they won their age division by 44 games, the widest margin not only in Oklahoma City, but also in Tulsa. Even though they are playing in the 12U age group the Barracudas are made up of one 8 yr old, three 9 yr olds, one 10 yr old, two 11 yr olds, and one 12 yr old. The Barracudas are young, experienced, and looking forward to the summer Team Tennis season. Congratulations to Taytum Jones, our Captain, John Paul Dillon, Javier Vasquez, Kellen Hays, Macy Hays, Lloyd Washington, Kadence Williams, and Grey Dillon.
The “new look” BCC Cheetahs were also honored at our Awards Ceremony Wednesday evening. The Cheetahs entered the spring season with only one member of the team who had any Team Tennis experience. With little experience, but great desire the Cheetahs players worked hard to prepare for the season. The Cheetahs finished the spring season with a 5-1 record, they won 20 out of 25 matches played, went 174-80 in games played which is an astounding 68% winning percentage! After all of the numbers were tabulated the BCC Cheetahs captured the City Championship! We are so proud of these kids! Congratulations to Grey Dillon, Braver Reineke, Ivan Mendoza, Audrey Bohnstedt, Hayden Shriner, Alma Mendoza, Andrea Mendoza, and Yuri Mendoza!
