NorCal 35s finished fifth, blitzing Florida 5-0. Carolyn Wei beat Marta Garzon 62 63; Mai Ichikawa only lost a game against Steline Disbergen and Catherine Vowles outlasted Suzanne Siegler, displaying newfound patience and a big serve in the win. Ichikawa/Wei beat Tracy Viebrock/Disbergen and Scott/Chris Ramsower-Pearlstein beat Teri Mejides/Siegler.
In the action you really wanted to know about, Texas 45s were playing Southern 45s when we left, the doubles was about 15 minutes away from starting. Southern won at #2 (Mariana Hollman beat Kathy Vick)and #1 singles (Fran Chandler beat Shelly Works), but Vicky Buholz outlasted Sue Bartlett at #3 singles (Sue cramped in the third and had to retire). So I don’t know who won the tie.
The SoCal 35s were also up 2-1 after the singles over Southern. SoCal won at #1 and #2 singles, but Taylor Taylor, playing at #3, rallied from a set and 51 down against Cammy MacGregor to win the match.
