Tina Karwasky in the 55s and Rita Price in the 85s joined Dori deVries in winning the singles and doubles at Chamisal on Friday.

Kelly Pace dominated the 35 singles, winning her second singles title of the year. Mary Dailey/Erika Smith won the 35 doubles, the final of which was unfortunately a default (Pace had to attend a wedding rehearsal). That completed a 35s doubles Gold Slam for Mary Dailey, who won all 4 doubles titles despite having knee surgery mid-season.
Mariana Hollman and JJ Joseph won the 45 doubles over Dailey/Smith 76 in the third. The two teams split the 45 doubles titles this year.
Brenda Carter added the 65 doubles title to the singles title she won yesterday, finishing the year with 3 national singles titles and two doubles golds.
thanks for the reporting, Carolyn. It really was a huge upset. Joyce’s name is Vanderpole and I’m sure it will be corrected when reported to NSWTA magazine. thanks again and hope to see you next year. Looking forward to all reports on Cup Team and World Championships in Turkey. rita
