The Invitational has special ties as it is a Smash Cancer event where each school honors someone who has battled cancer and has ties to their team/ community. for 2019 the Tigers honored Netta Eastman who is dealing with both Brain and Liver Cancer. Netta is married to former assistant coach Bob Eastman and former player and assistant Sarah Thompson (Eastman). She has many more ties to the Lady Tennis program and several of the players.
The Tigers played two rounds on Friday due to rain coming in Saturday. Individual flights saw some tough draws for the young Tigers. The Tigers played six tiebreakers late into the night while playing some of their best tennis all season. The night was highlighted by Kelsey pulling an upset win against Jasper.
