Sunday, December 9, 2006-Final Day
It was a long, exciting day for 64 players as the final rounds of the 1st Annual "Little Mo" International Open was played. Though there were some tears in the eyes of these under 11 players, everyone brightened up when as they were each given a trophy and a medal. It was just one of the "extra" touches that MCB Executive Director Carol Weyman added to this event.

Rain brought the very last matches into the courts at TCU. I went over to that great facility in time for the girls 8 trophies and final match -- which gathered an impressed audience that included some of the college players. I'm sorry to say that I missed taking pictures of a (very) few players in the confusion of the two sites, but the names of all the main draw participants are below. Among the winners was Thai Kwiatkowski, who picked up the International 11s Trophy to add to his National 10 and under and 8 and under trophies.

One person who did not receive a trophy despite earning one was Tournament Director Thomas Eckel. Not only did he manage to keep the matches flowing throughout the tournament, but he was often seen wiping tears and deciphering any language that was brought to him. He was a big part in making the event such a success and one I look forward to returning to.

Until next year,
Marcia Frost
