SURPRISE, Ariz. - The 2011 Jr. Team Tennis National Championships finished strong as two new Champions were crowned. As we look back on this year’s tournament, it was an exciting event that featured great tennis, true sportsmanship and a lot of fun. All of which would not be possible without the participation from the great teams, coaches, fans, staff members and everyone else who made this tournament one to remember. 
The "ATA Dream Team" from Austin, representing the USTA Texas section, today captured the 2011 Jr. Team Tennis 18 & Under Advanced National Championship title in a tough match against the USTA Florida’s "904" team from Jacksonville, 49-39. 
"It feels great to be national champions. Last year we finished second and our goal was to come back and try to win it all," said Kendall Brooks, Team Coach.  "We have two seniors on the team this year, and I am really happy for Josh and Brooke and the great memories they will be taking away with them."
In the semifinals match, "Team RCC" from the Midwest section, took home third place honors as they defeated the "Wells Wackers," representing the Northern section by a score of 48-36.
