Next Stop, The Finals For A Young Star

On a day that saw heat that would make a camel beg for water, Brianna Brown of Pennsauken, played with all the coolness of a polar bear. Competing in The Art McAlway Memorial Tournament at Mill Creek Park in Willingboro NJ, Miss Brown traded ground strokes and games with Miss Karrissa Bendijo of Atlantic City NJ. The match saw the two athletes start out a little slow, both athletes waiting for the other to make the mistake. Brianna's steady forehand, that has been know to make others wilt under the heat, helped her win the first set 6-3. Karrissa who seem to have a pretty decent game plan coming in kept her opponent off balance with an array of well placed shots that seemed to keep Brianna off balance. But after losing the first set, Karrissa seemed to throw caution to the wind and started to bring a little heat her self.
