Lauren Herring, who was named to the Junior Fed Cup team, is among players from throughout the South that had great success in ITF and USTA Nationals tournaments this spring.

Herring, of Greenville, N.C., was named to the 16-and-under Junior Fed Cup team by the USTA. Her teammates will be Nicole Gibbs, of Manhattan Beach, Calif., and Esther Goldfeld, of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Each event features a four-team round-robin competition, May 1-3, at the USTA Training Center Headquarters, located at the Evert Tennis Academy in Boca Raton, Fla. The two teams from each division in the World Junior Tennis qualifying event in Boca Raton will advance to the 16-nation world final, held Aug. 3-8 in Prostejov, Czech Republic. The Junior Davis Cup and Junior Fed Cup World Finals will be held Sept. 29-Oct. 4 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. As Mexico is the host country, its teams will automatically qualify in Boca Raton, so only one other team from each division will advance to the 16-nation world final.
