Boys and Girls Tennis Have Strong Showing at DecoTurf National Tournament

The Saint Andrew’s boys and girls Varsity Tennis Teams competed in the DecoTurf High School Tennis Championships in Chattanooga, Tennessee, March 14-15, 2019.

The DecoTurf Tournament has been held for 12 years and is the premiere High School Team Tennis Tournament in the nation. Year in and year out the fields have gotten stronger and stronger. Over the tournament’s history, 130 State Championship teams have competed and over 260 of its participants signed commitments to play Division 1 tennis, while 196 others have committed to play D2, D3, or Junior College tennis.

In 2019, the Saint Andrew’s girls team reached the semi finals before falling in a close match to eventual tournament champion, Doral Academy.  The girls rallied to win the 3rd place playoff match versus Lambert High School out of Atlanta, Georgia. The girls were led by Sophomore Sara Snyder, who went undefeated at both #1 singles and #1 doubles.

The Saint Andrew’s Boys made it all the way to the finals this year before falling to Montverde Academy claiming the runner-up trophy. The Scots play was particularly impressive as two middle schoolers, one freshman and a sophomore hold the top four spots on the team. Along the way, the Scots defeated teams from Georgia and North Carolina, along with a very experienced Missouri State Championship team in the semifinals.

The Scots are positioned to once again be a dominant force as they head in to post-season play in the middle of April. Congratulations to both teams and to Head Coach Reid Rafter and Assistant Coach Beth Daub on another successful showing at this national tournament. Go Scots!
