April 23, 2013 02:33 PM
The 2013 USTA NNMTA Junior Varsity Year-End Tennis Tournament was hosted this weekend, April 20th and 21st, at the new Jerry Cline Tennis Complex and Albuquerque Academy Tennis Courts. The finals were held Sunday morning.  After many close games were played, the Albuquerque Academy teams walked away with three first place finishes.  The La Cueva Boys in Flight 1 played hard to take the fourth championship.  Belen, Eldorado and Bosque all walked away with great finishes as well.  Check out the final scores below.
The USTA NNMTA JV League and Year-end Event was first hosted in the spring of 2001. The first schools to participate in this event included La Cueva, Highland, Del Norte, Eldorado and Cibola. Since that time, it has grown to serve from 250 to 350 participants each year.
Special thanks to the City of Albuquerque for partnering with the Northern New Mexico Tennis Association in providing this tennis venue. Also, thanks to the ColemanVision Tennis Championships, a 75K Women's Pro Circuit Event and New Mexico Youth Tennis Foundation for their support. This year all main draw winners and finalists, as well as consolation winners received ColemanVision Tournament T-shirts for their outstanding performances on the court.
