Florida’s 3.5 Women and 4.0 Women Finish 4th!

October 12, 2004 10:35 AM

Fourth place is definitely not a bad finish for two teams that got to National Championships via a lottery!  Following four devastating hurricanes across the state of Florida, the USA League Tennis presented by Lincoln Sectional Championships were rescheduled and ultimately cancelled after the third attempt to play.  In order to declare a winner, an outside auditing firm was hired, and a lottery was held.  From that lottery, amongst those heading to the USA League Tennis National Championships was Tampa’s 3.5 women’s team and Ormond Beach’s 4.0 women’s team.  Both National Championships were held at the Randolph Tennis Center in Tucson.

Tampa lost to a team from Westchester, NY, (4-1) in the third and fourth place playoff match.  Earlier in the day, Tampa, Fla., was defeated by eventual National Champions San Juan, Puerto Rico, (3-2) in the semifinals.  They advanced to the final four by winning their round-robin flight contested Friday and Saturday.

The team is captained by Darcy McDonald and team members include: Faith Sincich, Stephanie Geshel, Valerie Brand, Laura McVay, Kathleen Peterson, Vicki Mathews, Ginnie Whitaker, Sissy Saunders, Linda Kraft, Karen Huggins, Orasa Jones
