THE LATEST(2/1/2009)Thank you for a wonderful day yesterday... a lot of fun and excitement. After viewing the final point (Bailey's infamous line shot) on Tony Perez's phone, the ball clearly did not hit the antennae and was decisively in....way to go Bailey and team!!!!!

Thanks to all of our parents for all of your efforts!
1. James River tournament- I need the team there by 8:30. We work the first match then play the next 2. after lunch, we go into playoffs. This should prove to be a fun and challenging tournament!
