HISTORY/YEARBOOK DESCRIPTION
The Maureen Connolly Brinker Outstanding Junior Girl Award was approved in February 1969 at the USTA Annual Meeting. Created by the Maureen Connolly Brinker Tennis Foundation, Inc., the award is presented each year at the USTA National Girls’ 18 Championships in San Jose, Calif., at the Almaden Valley Athletic Club. The award and the foundation were the dream of the late Maureen Connolly Brinker. The magnificent silver bowl, which is kept at the Almaden Valley Athletic Club, has inscribed on it the name of each year’s winner. The recipient of the award receives a small engraved silver tray. Elize Pande from Palo Alto, Calif., received the first award in 1969.
