Grants for Junior Players

July 17, 2007 01:38 AM
Courtney Byron and Garret Dunn were each awarded $500.00 from the William J. Stark Scholarship Fund.  This award is given annually to a USTA Central Arizona junior player to assist in the traveling expenses of attending a USTA National Junior Tennis Tournament.  These players were selected based on the following criteria:  Sportsmanship, achievents in tennis; financial; participation in local tournaments; and recommendation letters from teachers and coaches. 
In addition, USTA Central Arizona's junior grant committee has also awarded a total of $3,000 for local junior players to attend regional or national USTA events.  So far in 2007 the following players have completed the grant application process:  Augustus Ge, Alex Lawson, Nicholas Montoya & Joseph Adewumi. 
Congratulations to all of these players and good luck at Nationals!
