Xavier Prep sophomores Emily Even and Erica Stutz have returned to Arizona after helping the Southwest team (Team ATA) finish third out of four teams in the U.S. Tennis Association’s Junior Team Tennis 18 and Under National Championship in Orlando, Fla.

Both girls were 1-2 for the co-ed team and played doubles together. Stutz also played singles.

Even also was the recipient of a sportsmanship award presented by tourney officials.

A great effort, ladies!!
