Local USTA junior tennis team, the Fairbanks Team Spirit, recently won the Southern California Sectional Championship in the 12 and under intermediate division. The team included Luke Williams, Grace Bruton, James Susman, Alex Goskowicz, Safi Jafri, Julia Wisnia, Charlie Castle, Jessie Walker and Sophie Raizadeh.

The players attend Solana Pacific Elementary School, Solana Santa Fe Elementary School, Earl Warren Middle School, Muirlands Middle School and La Jolla Country Day, and train at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club.

“What a great season the children had and what a great experience to play the sectional championships at a site like Indian Wells Tennis Garden,” said coach Shelley Susman. “All of our players showed amazing poise and represented our club with fantastic sportsmanship and team camaraderie.”

In the championships, the Spirit beat out teams from all over the Southern California region and was one of only two San Diego teams. — Karen Billing
