The annual Pine Tree Festival Tennis Tournament took place last weekend and honored two individuals in a special way.
Wesley Woods was singles champion of the last tournament before he lost his life to cancer in February 2021. Event organizers planned to hand out a sportsmanship award in his honor when the tournament rolled around this year, and the plan came to life as Henry Hobbs was bestowed the award for portraying Woods’s great qualities on the court.
Awards were also given out in nine other categories.
The 14-and-under girls singles went to Sydney Kate Aaron. Grayson Brassell finished runner-up.
The 14-and-under boys singles title was secured by Gavin Schaff while Kayden Childs (not photographed) placed second.
Emerson Laesser won the men’s singles division. Beau Gunn came in second.
Teammates Bill Tisdale and Brian Galgon championed the men’s doubles category while teammates Tom Lieu and Casey Webb placed second.
The team of Anna Grace Bosley and Rylee Veeland won the girls doubles division while Lydia Fowler and teammate Aaron came in runner-up.
Veeland also won the 18-and-under girls singles division. Gracie Ogletree placed second.
