Dominican’s Annual Tennis Tournament Shines

Despite the rain, St. Mary’s Dominican High School’s 10th Annual Tennis Tournament at City Park/Pepsi Tennis Center served up goodwill and drew the largest turnout of teams in the past ten years. The group had a great time off the tennis courts, enjoying friends, lunch, and entering a chance to win from the parade of prizes, thanks to donors who provided a raffle of wonderful prizes.

It also marked the tenth and final year for the Tennis Team Committee members who will pass to new members the responsibility for all logistics of the tournament that raises funds for the St. Mary Anne McSweeney, O.P. Faculty Endowment Fund. The fund supports Dominican’s commitment to attracting, retaining, and rewarding quality teachers for the ministry of Dominican Catholic education. In 2017, the Tennis Team Committee received the Sr. Mary Angela Mulhern ’56, O.P. Service Award that saluted the committee for embracing the Dominican graduate ideals and giving generously of their time and talents to Dominican and the community.
