Tournament Chairman Rex Maynard said: "Dutch Fork took control of this year's tournament early, and then won 7 out of 8 matches on the last day to win easily. They finished the weekend with a 18-3 record, one of the best team performances ever in the Hall of Fame Classic. We had great competition, with four teams finishing within two points of each other. All the girls played well, and I hope they benefited from the competitive matches. I expect to see all these teams do well in the playoffs in a few weeks."
The 2-day tournament is hosted by the Belton Tennis Association and sponsored by Chick-fil-A, and each year includes many of the top teams in the state. Maynard is the tournament chairman and is assisted by Tournament Referee Maxine LeCroy and Tournament Director Mark Smith.
