The MacArthur High School girls tennis team was named Long Island High School Team of the Year during the 27th annual United States Tennis Association Long Island Region awards dinner, held at Chateau Briand Caterers in Carle Place on May 3. The Lady Generals were recognized for the team’s Aces for Autism clinic on the tennis courts at MacArthur High School on April 18. More than a dozen students enrolled in the school’s Applied Behavior Analysis program attended the tennis clinic. Additionally, through the sale of T-shirts and baked goods, the team raised $450 for autism awareness charities.
One of the most exciting parts of the evening was the opportunity to meet Gigi Fernandez, who has won 17 Grand Slam titles and two Olympic Gold medals.
The district congratulates the student-athletes on this outstanding accomplishment and philanthropic endeavor.
