MOBILE, AL- Juniors Lana Mavor (Yarmouth, ME) and Jennifer Riester (Lynnfield, MA) took home top New England honors at the annual L1 Spring Team Championships. Both Mavor and Riester were part of the Silver Medallion-winning “Diamondbacks” team that featured two girls from the 18s, 16s and 14s divisions from around the country. Mavor played No. 1 singles in the 18s while Riester played No. 2 singles in 16s for the second-place squad. Both also competed in doubles.

Riester went unbeaten (4-0) in singles and finished with a 1-3 mark in doubles. Mavor contributed by going 2-2 in both singles and doubles.

The Diamondbacks won each of their first three matches, 7-2, 5-4 and 6-3, before coming up just short in their final match against the eventual champions, Stingrays, 4-5.
