In this post, I am going to do a little personal bragging on my son, Paul — but it also has a business angle. So, the business angle first: Pacific tennis.
Paul recently switched to the Pacific X Force racket. In 2009, Pacific acquired Fischer’s racket sports division and has been producing Pacific rackets with Fischer technology since then. The X Force is a 98 square inch, 295 gram (10.4 ounce) racket with a head light balance and soft feel.
Using the X Force, Paul teamed with Chad Hoskins and won the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 4A doubles championship.
Paul’s team, RJ Reynolds High School, entered the team tournament as two-time defending champions. As described in the Winston-Salem Journal, Paul saved 3 match points and won 14-12 in a third set match breaker to help Reynolds defeat Raleigh Wakefield for their third straight NCHSAA 4A Championship.
Go Demons! 3 Peat!
