Weekly Spotlight 


 YTA's own rising star Azaria Hayes of Bear Trax won the Natomas Super Series this past weekend beating the #1 seeded player 5-4 in the girls 14's.

Azaria received the Sportsmanship Award at the Excellence tournament at Gold River for her excellent conduct on the court and has also earned a 3.9 GPA in school this past semester. She is an inspiration and a great role-model for other YTA kids!



National Arthur Ashe Essay Contest Winner from YTA               

One of our YTA students, 10 year old Makda Dawit, who plays at Mosswood Park in Oakland, won the USTA national Arthur Ashe Essay Contest (one of ten winners in the US). Makda gets an all expenses paid trip to the US Open with one of her parents to receive her prize. Having YTA students write an essay on Arthur Ashe each year is one of YTA's four core projects our kids do as part of our College Pathways program. 

Congratulations Makda!!
