USTA Southern Section Names Recipients for Summer Tennis Camp Scholarships

June 3, 2003 02:09 PM

Nine talented junior players are on their way to tennis camps this summer, after the USTA Southern Section and various tennis camps around the country teamed up to offer week-long scholarships to the deserving recipients.

Tyler Cobb, a 13 year-old from Lafayette, GA, and 11 year-old Matthew Chiaverini of Kennesaw, GA will be attending Nike Tennis Camps at The Baylor School in Tennessee and Emory University in Georgia, respectively.

Two more players head to South Carolina; 13 year-old Kelsey Gray of Woodstock, GA will go to Hilton Head Island for the Van der Meer Tennis Camp and 16 year-old Mario Myles of Stone Mountain, GA will hit the courts at Clemson University for the Clemson Tiger Tennis Camp. Cody Kennon, an 11 year-old from Midland, GA, remains close to home as he attends the Georgia College & State University Bobcat Tennis Camp in Milledgeville, GA. The longest trip of the summer, however, will be made by 13 year-olds Britney Dean (Riverdale, GA) and Carmen Nelson (Jonesboro, GA), as they travel to the Weil Tennis Camp in Ojai, California.

Other 2003 scholarship winners will attend the Rod Ray Tennis Camp at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC and the Windridge Tennis Camp in Jeffersonville, Vermont.

Of the twenty-three applicants, the winners were selected based on their participation in the various USTA programs and an evaluation of their attitude, character, motivation, sportsmanship, and academics. The selection process was carried out by the USTA Southern Section’s Junior Programs Department. We wish them all the best of luck and hope they have fun!
