In Addition: This table tennis event started in 2011, so this is the 6th consecutive year as it keeps getting bigger.
Until the time comes when there are enough girls to have their own table tennis team (three per team), this is a co-ed event for now. This is the second consecutive year girls have been on a team. Last year, Caroline Cox, an 8th grader, made the Hewitt Middle School team, making her the first girl to take part. This year, there were two; Kyle Wilson, another 8th grader from Oneonta Middle School and Lexi McGrew, a 7th grader from Simmons Middle School.
