Great job kids!

Week 2: 

Congratulations to: MDSC (7th Grade). Down 10 points with under a minute to go, MDSC lead by Simcha Gervitz kept themselves in the game with great defense, second chance points, and knocking down big shot after big shot, some from super deep. Although they lost by two (MDSC – 60, JTAP Tennis League – 62) they got the Inkredible Comeback Kids award for believing in themselves even when the game seemed out of reach and being one shot away from tying the game with seconds to go. Way to go enjoy your ice cream party kids, you earned it!
