Students are calling it "their best field trip ever." The fourth-graders at Oakley Elementary School participated in a tennis clinic Wednesday in Asheville.

They have four classmates who made it happen.

"I hope that through this essay you may learn a little history about the Fed Cup," Isabella wrote in her essay.

Isabella, Ella, Alexis and Emma were all winners of the countywide essay contest. And because they won, the entire fourth grade was able to go to the Fed Cup Carnival at the U.S. Cellular Center.

Their classmates said they're thankful the girls decided to enter the competition.

"They worked for days a three-page paragraph. I just think that they did awesome," fourth-grader Jusean said.

Most of the students said the essay contest has encouraged them to write more ... just in case they might be able to win a prize along the way.
