Brady won the Franklin & Marshall Tournament this weekend! Boy was he excited! There were 6 boys in the tournament...Brady being the youngest. Brady skated through his first two matches easily to get into the final. He won the final 6-2, 6-2.
What a week it has been! Last Monday Brady played in his first ever doubles tourament with his tennis friend Jonah. Eric and I keep talking about it because it was the cutest thing ever! The boys were excited and worked as a team and were 'high fiving' like crazy. Their energy was awesome and people watching the match couldn't help but cheer them on. Brady and his partner won. So fun to watch. Normally Brady is very serious on the tennis court, so it was really neat for us to see him laughing and having fun during the match.
Brady also played singles in the same tournament. There were 8 boys in his age group (Brady the youngest of course, as always). Brady had a tough first round. He lost the first set and came back to win the next two sets. In the second round, he won 6-0, 6-0. On to the finals! He played a boy that he's played a couple times before and never beaten. This boy will soon be aging out of the 12 and under group. Jacob is really good...Brady decided to just go out and give Jacob the best tennis match he could. Brady lost 6-1, 6-0. Brady played some of the best tennis he has ever played...and walked off the court as proud as can be. Later Jacob's mom said that Brady gave Jacob one of his best matches all year. I don't know if that's true...but it was nice of her to say that! Sometimes our best moments aren't always the ones we win. Later, Brady and Jonah went on to beat Jacob and his partner in the doubles final. :)
Three trophies in one week...he is flying high!
