[VIDEO] Mast Brothers, the Perfect Match

Two brothers separated by age and distance, come together for the love of the game. 

If you know anything about Conestoga Valley tennis, you would have no doubt heard the last name, Mast.

Brothers, Alex and Darren are quite the power on the court. Alex, a former CV high school player, won 3 L-L League championships, and 2 state titles in his time as a Buckskin; and now his younger brother is holding to that winning tradition. Darren taking the L-L League championship home this year, qualified for States after finishing third in District play.

Now Alex is back home in Lancaster, teaching at the Bent Creek Country Club, and one of his students is his very own brother. Alex coaching Darren the past few months, hoping his experience will help Darren get past those first time jitters.

But most of all this new opportunity has allowed this two brothers to reconnect. With a 7 year age gap, Alex was off traveling to tennis tournaments or playing in college when Darren was growing up. So now the boys are serving up some quality time together for the first time in years. And the boys are getting to know each other - and you won't believe how competitive they are!

Here is the complete story on how these two balance being coach and student, tennis players, brothers, and most of all friends.  (Includes interviews with both Alex and Darren as well as CV's tennis coach, Dale Gregg.
