Five Gator tennis players in top form

Another great achievement for the Xavier Prep tennis program!

Over the weekend in Albuquerque, five Xavier players teamed up with five boys from area schools to win the 18 Advanced USTA Sectionals.

The group will advance to the Nationals in November at the Home of America Tennis facility in Orlando. Four Xavier juniors competed – Erica Stutz, Emily Even, Lorelei Glidden and Jessica Mirmelli. And one freshman rounded out the five – Ryan Kershner.

The group was coached by Xavier assistant coach Ford Oliver.

Congratulations to all!!
