Anyone who knows me well understands I have always been very strict when it comes to on court and mostly off court behavior. I have never seen tennis as an avenue to the "pros," nor do I care about wins and losses based on scores in a game. As far as I am concerned the real game is "life" and tennis is nothing more then a vehicle, a proving ground, to teach all of us how to master the principles that play out in our every day life; How to work hard, how to stay calm, how to embrace , love and make the most out of adversity. Our willingness to eat right, be honest, choose right, let go of frustration and a plethora of other elements to excellence ultimately adds up to our collective happiness and peace of mind.To me it is all about striving to be a "pro" at life.

By Tamilia Hicks's Marty Hennessy Jr. Tennis Foundation, James Johnson's North Las Vegas Community program and Lorenzi park teamed up to help offer the Gibson Middle School students and parents a free tennis Carnival.

The Carnival is the beginning of a Gibson Middle School free after school program that will include tennis and education opportunities.
With all the wide range of games and activities the children had fun and the chance to sign up for a new tennis club created by former league player and middle school teacher Mercedes Krause and her mother who plays league at Club Sport.
The tennis club started by Mercedes Krause in partnership with the Hennessy Foundation will give these children the chance to start an inner school league team and learn a sport for a lifetime.

1984. That's the year the doors of The Meadows School opened. In the history of the school not once had the tennis team won the regional crown. In a school which is known for their high SAT scores rather than their set scores, competing in 4A high school tennis may have been a daunting task.

Fast forward 26 years to year 2010. The planets have aligned as the girl's tennis team has a stable of tennis thoroughbreds and a new coaching team led by former NCAA Champion and professional tennis player Tim Blenkiron, which also includes Hassan Humayun and Maggie Yahner.

Five members of the Meadows girls team have national rankings. They went through the school year undefeated and even more impressive is the margin of victory in the wins. The average score of each match was a whopping 17-1 going into the Sunset regional tournament.
