Fairfield TTC Teens raise USATT ratings

Congratulations to two of our college-bound players, Adam Sahar and Anthony Capasso on recent wins in a recent NY tournament, bringing them higher USATT tournament ratings.

   Anthony reached the finals of the tournament's Under 2200 event, with his 7-3 win-loss record in that, and the Under 2350 event, earning him a 2100 rating.

Adam's upset win, over a player rated 2244 helped him improve his rating to a career best 2169.

   Both teens started as beginners at the Fairfield TTC as middle school students, becoming two of the States top rated players of all ages in about 5 years of weekly play.

   Adam is expected to attend Fairfield University this fall, while Anthony will attend UCONN.  They will likely provide Inter collegiate competition for a recent new FF TTC members Angus Fong and Joshua Surya of Yale in Northeast regional NCTTA events.
