40 Hard Courts; Magers Doubles Again

Gretchen Magers "three-peated" as the 40 singles champion this year. She beat Tracy Houk 60 63, using her aggressive all court style to defeat the always tenacious Houk. The second set looked to be close, tied at 3-3, but Magers closed the door on Houk at that point. Ellie Hammargren won a hard fought three setter over Mariana Hollman to take the bronze. Rhona Kaczmarzyk, who lost to Ellie in the quarters, beat Kathy Vick in the 5/6 playoff 62 63.
Magers/Kathy May Fritz easily won the doubles final over Betty Ann Grout/Terry Holladay. Magers was the only one on the court not eligible for the 50s…in fact Grout/Holladay won the 50 doubles in La Jolla in 2005 and Fritz won the 50 singles there in 2006. Hollman/Houk beat the 2nd seeds, Annmarie Brigandi/Kathy Vick in the 3/4 playoff. Meioli/Prolman won the back draw.
Fritz/Ortiz won the mixed; Kaczmarzyk/Weiner took the bronze.
