Long Islanders Luke Louchheim and Alexander Karman were among the four boys and four girls chosen to represent the USTA Eastern Section at its Annual “Capital Clash” 10-and-under round robin tournament held over the weekend of Oct. 19-20 at the USTA Regional Training Center in College Park, Md.

Teams from five USTA Sections participated in the two-day event. Competing in singles, doubles and mixed-doubles, Luke and Alex helped their team to a close second place finish behind a very talented team from the Middle States Section. Luke Louchheim won the award for Coachability.
