Midwest Closed Recap
By Collete Lewis, Tennis Recruiting Network
Success in the 12s division does not guarantee comparable results in older age divisions. Yet three of the four champions crowned last Thursday at the Midwest Closed 16s and 18s Championships had claimed sectional titles in the 12s age group, suggesting their development paths have emphasized continued improvement.
The sectional tournament, based at the Barbara Wynne Tennis Center at North Central High School in the Indianapolis area, used Universal Tennis Ratings to seed the top 16 in the 128-player draws, while using USTA/Midwest rankings for those seeds in the 17-32 range.
