NorCal, Southern Win First Titles at USTA Senior Women’s Intersectional Team Event

USTA NorCal brought a stellar team to Phoenix. Tracy Houk, Judy Newman, Lindsey Montero, Pam Cooke, Kim Lackey, and Erika Smith beat Southern in the semis and Texas in the final to win the 55s.

USTA Southern upset USTA SoCal, with Wendy McColskey as the MVP. She scored her first singles win over Tina Karwasky in a three set thriller, then teamed with Tina’s doubles partner, Jan Kirkland Cochran (who divides her time between Florida and Georgia) to edge Tina/Ann Stanley in three sets.

The 75s and 80s finish tomorrow and the 35s/45s started play today, Nov. 11…they finish on the 14th.

This is the first time the Intersectional competition has been held in Phoenix.
