When we were at the Lone Star Classic we met a group of people supporting a young lady by the name of Halle Brent who was fighting brain cancer at the time.  The created a little pin and honored Halle at every match.  They were kind enough to drop off a pin with a little card that said what Halle was dealing with.


Halle’s team has been fighting it out on the court to honor her.  Unfortunately, Halle lost her battle last week.  To Halle’s friends and family, we give are sincerest condolences.  Halle, we never got to meet you, but you are in our hearts.
