Wycliffe Golf & Country Club in Wellington recently hosted the USTA Columbus Day Open.

This was one of the largest Level 2 nationally sanctioned events of the year.

Over 40 Boys and 40 Girls 18 and Under participated in this major event.

Saturday and Sunday the weather was great.

Monday’s rain played havoc with the day’s proceedings.

Kam Kuchta, Wycliffe’s Director of Tennis and his entire staff did a spectacular job in getting and keeping the courts ready for play.

In the Girls’ finals number 1 seed Zoe Howard of Chevy Chase, MD defeated the number 4 seed Anna Ross of Charleston, SC 6-4, 6-2.

In the Boys’ finals number 2 seed Matthew Fung of Miami, FL defeated unseeded Noah Berry of Bellaire, TX in an almost three hour match, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.

The spectators were treated to three days of great tennis.
