The MacArthur High School girls tennis team hosted its first Aces for Autism clinic on the tennis courts at the school on April 18, 2017. The Lady Generals held a tennis clinic for a dozen students in MacArthur's Applied Behavior Analysis program (known as the ABA program). Senior captains Kristen Cassidy, Clare Del Grosso, Alyssa Breeze and Kaitlin Deegan set up three stations of drills, at which MacArthur's autistic students practiced tennis fundamentals.

Juniors Kayla Schmidt and Melissa Seinberg, Coach Phil Machmer, Principal Joseph Sheehan, ABA teacher Diann Drury and members of the MacArthur boys tennis teams also participated in the clinic.

Through the sale of baked goods and Aces for Autism t-shirts, the team raised $450 for MacArthur's Autism Awareness program.
