Pecos High School student Trent Graham placed second recently in the Amarillo
Championship Major Zone Tournament, a USTA event for junior tennis players.
Graham won four of five matches at the tournament, defeating Drew Wellsfry
of Wichita Falls, 7-5, 6-1; Kirk Logan of Midland, 6-2, 6-2; Jonathan Meyer
of Carrolton, 6-2, 6-2 and Doug Clifton of Plano, 6-4, 6-1, to reach the
finals. In the title match, Graham lost to Jay Wofford of Lubbock, 6-2, 6-4.
Meanwhile, Pecos High School Tennis Coach Mike Ortiz said the USTA would
be holding a tennis carnival at the Pecos High School tennis courts for elementary
school-age players, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21.
Admission is free, and the event will include both games and door prizes,
"I expect a representative from the main (USTA) office in Austin out here,"
he said. "In February we had 260 kids out here for the last tennis carnival,
so I expect more than that to be there this time."
