Senior Tennis Stars Madison Smith (Army) and Manci Pal (Navy) Featured in the Palm Beach Post

Palm Beach County tennis: Army, Navy rivals lead Saint Andrew's juggernaut

by Marc Berman (Palm Beach Post):

The Saint Andrew’s tennis juggernaut never disappoints.

The girls have won six straight 1A championships and are favorites to make it a lucky seven. The boys have won 3 straight 1A state titles (private/charter schools).

In a Palm Beach County era in which high-school tennis enrollment has suffered, there are 75 kids combined in the two programs. Coach Reid Rafter has broken up his girls team into A, B and C squads.

And there’s another compelling story emerging on the Boca Raton campus – a tale of two teammates in seniors Madison Smith and Manci Pal. They have been friends since seventh grade and stand as the Scots’ top two singles players.

Alas, they have elected to go two divergent paths after graduation. Smith has committed to Army, Pal to Navy. Both are Division I programs.
