Hurlbut, Sack, Robinson, Seymour Win National Singles Crowns at Laguna Woods

Lester Sack won the 75 singles over Bob Quall, 63 34 retired (injury); Kaz Saito won the bronze by default over Herm Ahlers.

In the 80s, Neil Hurlbut won his second title in as many weeks, the 80 singles (he won the indoors last week in Vancouver, WA). He beat George McCabe 63 63. Saul Snyder took the bronze by default over his doubles partner, Roger Hing.

In the 85s, Stuart Robinson beat Clem Hopp for the second straight week, this time 61 63 and like Hurlbut is half way to a “Gold Slam” in singles. Wally Vickery took the bronze over Richard Eitel in three sets. Eitel, unlike Robinson and Hopp played both singles and doubles this week, as did Vickery.

The 90s was won by Bob Seymour over Yutaka Kobayashi, in a  hotly contested final 75 67 1/0 (11-9)

Hank Leichtfried and George Sarantos dominated the 75s, beating Lenny Lindborg/Brunkow 60 61 for the title. Jones/Wahl took the bronze.
