The FEAST Tennis Team had an incredible season despite getting a late start. The FEAST Tennis Team was jumpstarted by coach/coordinator, Dr. Sue Berry. Mr. Andy Murillo provided instruction and coaching for the tennis team. Both the MS and HS teams competed well and won many team and individual awards. Joshua Chacko and Grace Berry served as team captains. Congratulations to both the middle and high school teams for playing exceptionally well in the tournaments.
