Cammy MacGregor and Tami Whitlinger, despite being only 16 years old, are rated as the top two seeded players in the 18-and-under division of the 10th annual Seventeen Magazine Tennis Tournament of Championships. The tournament begins today at the Marguerite Recreation Center in Mission Viejo.
MacGregor, who lives in Palos Verdes, is the top-seeded player in the tournament. She is ranked fourth in the United States Tennis Assn.'s 18-and-under division, and is participating in her first Seventeen Tournament.
Hailing from Neenah, Wis., Whitlinger is currently the No. 27 player in the USTA's 16's division. She is coming off a 16's championship in the Tropicana Spring Invitational at Bradenton, Fla., earlier this year.
Another top seed in the 18's is 15-year-old Halle Cioffi of Knoxville, Tenn., who won the 16-and-under divisional title in the 1984 Seventeen Tournament.
