What a season! The Aspen Hill Club juniors finished off what they started and took the 2019 Montgomery County Junior Tennis League title with exciting fashion. Heading into the last week of the season, AHC’s team was looking good as they sat with an impressive record of 5-0—but had 2 incredibly tough matches remaining: the 2018 league champions, Palisades Club, followed by the always tough Cedarbrook to close out the season.
Our juniors were able to achieve revenge over the defending champs, (and only team last year to defeat Aspen Hill Club) Palisades! With the win, AHC was guaranteed their MCJTL championship. But with one match remaining, the undefeated record was on the line against Cedarbrook. The match lived up to the hype—ending at an even 9 matches to 9 matches! With this tie, all games were counted to determine the winner. By a score of 26 to 22 games, your Aspen Hill Club juniors ended the summer interclub season with an undefeated and perfect record!
The following week the individual playoffs took place, and AHC’s players represented The Club in excellent fashion. Here are highlights of those results:
Zane: Boys 12 singles Champion
Will: Boys High School Champion
Emma: Girls 12 Singles & Doubles Champion
Wangu: Girls 12 Singles Finalist & Doubles Champion
Nduta: Girls High School Finalist
Lizzie: Girls 14 singles Finalist
