In the 45s, the usual suspects, Southern and Texas are in the final. Southern beat Florida, taking all 3 singles matches. Fran Chandler beat Myke Bodisch 64 64; Diane Fishburne beat Frances O’Sullivan 6-0 60; and Sue Bartlett beat Susie Brown 61 75.
Texas upset NorCal 3-2. Kathy Vick beat Mary Johnson in a 2+ hour 61 61 match; Shelly Stillman Scott of NorCal scored the sole NorCal singles win over Vicky Williams 64 46 61 and Sue Whiting displayed remarkably good footwork in a 61 62 win over Leslie Airola-Murveit. In doubles at #2 doubles, Kim Lackey and Pam Cooke, NorCal beat Vick/Williams 64 16 60 but minutes later, Whiting/Lyn McWilliams completed a 75 64 win over Shelly Ramsower-Pearlstein/Stillman-Scott. The NorCal players rallied from 05 15-40 to 4-5, 0-40 but couldn’t complete their comeback to their satisfaction!
In the 35s, MATA beat Florida, taking 2 of the 3 singles points.
So Cal continued undefeated and plays Mid Atlantic in the final.
