Team Britton Wins 12s Junior Cup Championship

September 22, 2009 09:39 AM
Team (Devin) Britton, was coached by Neil Witherow of Mississippi.

USTA Southern hosted its Junior Cup Championships this past weekend, September 17-20, in the 12s division. The tournament was hosted by the Champions Club in Chattanooga, Tenn. but due to inclement weather, matches were played at several other local facilities. The Junior Cup, in its 14th year, was created as an event to showcase the sections up and coming junior players from each of its nine states. Each state sends the top six players, three boys and three girls, to compete for the weekend.

The winning team, Team (Devin) Britton, was coached by Neil Witherow of Mississippi. Members of Team Britton included Nicholas Anderson (Ark.), Travis Bell (Miss.), Andi Daniell (Ga.), Steven Karl (Tenn.), Gretchen Lee (Ala.) and Danielle Vines (Tenn.).

Players representing each state are:
Alabama: Cabel Cantrell, Josiah Collins, Dorey Courtney, Gretchen Lee, John Murphy, Ashley Ochsenhirt
Arkansas: Nicholas Anderson, Jackie Carr, Max Mendelsohn, Emily Metcalf, Marshall Ney, Myrna Olaya
Georgia: Jayanth Chintham, Andi Daniell, Shelby King, Alex Phillips, Emil Reinberg, Gabrielle Robinson
Kentucky: Brenna Adams, George Akmon, Brandon Lancaster, Morgan Malone, Madeline Rolph, J Austin Strause
Louisiana: Hannah Altick, Helen Altick, Cameron Andry, George Fourmaux, Anne Marie Kimball, Silvio Cocito Monoc
Mississippi: Travis Bell, Andrew Hildenbrand, Brighton Lowther, Meredith Roberts, Victoria Roberts, Turner Yates,
North Carolina: Charlotte Deiss, Matthew Fahys, Orla Labiche, Mikael Ogden, Courtney Price, Justin Warren
South Carolina: Melanie Allen, Kyle Barr, Spencer Brown, Savanna Fuller, Liam Wiggins,
Tennessee: Emerald Able, Jack Gray, Kenya Jones, Steven Karl, Claire Sullivan, Danielle Vines, Turner Voges

Teams, named after the top pro players from the Section, are comprised of various players from each state. Results are based on matches of singles, girls’ doubles, boys’ doubles and mixed doubles competition. The tournament also handed out Sportsmanship Awards to one boy and one girl who showed extraordinary conduct and enthusiasm both on and off the court. Recipients of this year’s award were Turner Voges (TN) and Courtney Price (NC).

The Junior Cup Championships will continue September 24-27 with the 14, 16 & 18s divisions. Action will again take place at the Champions Club in Chattanooga, Tenn., although with a different format. The states top players will face off against each other on their individual teams with Team Georgia looking for its 16th consecutive title.
