It’s been quite a weekend! Friday and Saturday we cheered on our Mountain View Tennis Team at the State Championship Tournament held in Salt Lake. Aaron and his partner played well Friday, but didn’t get to advance to the final matches on Saturday. But our 3 singles players all made it to the finals. It was crazy fun to cheer them on and watch them win. Especially as they took down the proud and haughty local competition, Orem’s Timpview High School, who have been State Champions 9 of the last 10 years. Tennis tournaments with Timpview are never a pleasure. There’s way too much swagger on that team. It was nice to see them cry yesterday as their dynasty unraveled before their own eyes. They came expecting to win it all, they went home without a trophy and without a single championship match. They were stunned.
Sometimes it just feels good to see the proud fall. It felt even better to see our boys hoisting that championship trophy at the end of the day.
