Hillebrand, Lutz Capture Singles titles at Indoors: Lutz Completes First Gold Slam!

    Jane Lutz added the 80 Indoor title to the three she’d already won this year, the Clay, Hard and Grass…to complete her first Gold Slam. She beat Louise Russ in the final. Joyce Jones and Angie Ray took the doubles crown. Lutz is also captaining the inaugural Doris Hart Cup team for women 80 and over in Turkey next month. Russ has also been named to the team. Nancy Stout, who placed third and Joan Brisbin, who finished forth in singles, complete the Hart Cup team.

In the 70s, Charleen Hillebrand won the singles in a tough three-setter over her doubles partner, Suella Steel, and combined with Steel to win the doubles. The two next head off to compete in the Althea Gibson Cup competition in Turkey the 10-15 of October. Patti Boyer/Nancy Garcia took the doubles bronze; Grace Woo won the bronze in singles over Boyer.

Martha Frederick beat Pat Yeomans to take the 90 singles title; there were only 2 competitors, so the 90 doubles was not held.
