Time to talk tennis, too

In working on a story about two North Carolina-bound Broward tennis players: Cypress Bay's Brennan Boyajian (this year's 4A champion) and Sagemont's Zach Hunter (the 1A overall winner), I came across some recent USTA junior rankings for boys and girls.

Plenty of Broward and Dade players were on these lists. And while that's probably not surprising, tennis is one of those sports that sometimes gets overlooked by many (I, too, am guilty as charged, as Dewey Cox would say).

Top 100 boys (18-and-under; as of May 15):

  • Boyajian, No. 11
  • William Federhofer (Dr. Krop High), No. 35
  • Spencer Wolf (Coral Springs), No. 50
  • Jeffrey Morris (Cypress Bay High), No. 53
  • Hunter, No. 63
  • Luke Mojika (Palmetto Sr. High), No. 67

Top 100 girls (18-and-under; as of May 15):

  • Courtney Clayton (St. Thomas Aquinas High), No. 10
  • Monica Chow (Miami), No. 13
  • Rachel Saiontz (Ransom Everglades School), No. 15
  • Alexandra Anghelescu (Weston), No. 35
  • Julie Sabacinski (American Heritage School), No. 60
  • Cassandra Herzberg (Miami Country Day School), No. 67
