The NEPSIC (New England Prep School Invitational Championship) is this Saturday and I qualified for the singles event! 600 people are eligible at the start of the year and it basically gets narrowed down to 16 people, all in the draw. There's some very stiff competition there. The top seed is #100 in the country, the #2 seed is a top 5 junior in New England, and the #3 seed is one of the top juniors in Thailand. I drew Chris Innes in the first round who is about 35 in New England 18s and I play the top seed if I get through that.

The tournament is held at Choate Rosemary Hall this Saturday (rain date Sunday) in Wallingford, CT (10 minutes away from where the Pilot Pen is). If you live w/in a reasonable drive, GO TO THE TOURNAMENT! It really is a fun event and the tennis is very high quality.

Here's the link to the draw-http://www.choate.edu/sports/neita

Scroll down and there will be a link to the draw. My name is Mac Ackerman.

Hope to see somebody there lol...peace

Oh wow I totally forgot you go to Choate. I'm a junior at Westminster right now. Thanks a lot for coming on Saturday though. Just so you know, you should prob come for the first match because it's prob 50/50 if I get through that. The quarterfinals...I don't know, the goal is just to not get bageled there :eek:

Yea, i guess i will be pretty early cause I have plans with my Choatie friends later in the day. Except it is supposed to rain both Sat and Sun :mad:. I hope the forecast is wrong tho (they are a lot of the times :eek:)

Ned Samuelson isn't even playing. I don't even know why...maybe he thinks it's a waste of time :eek: The top seed is Jon Hoak.
