USTA Atlanta City Finalist

Unfortunately we lost our second straight Atlanta city final, to a team that seems to have our number. Last spring, we lost our last regular season match to this same opponent, but still ended up winning our division and earning the bag tag because we'd won more matches overall. Friday night was a close one: we won one line and lost the other two in third set Coman tiebreakers.

We had an outstanding turnout - our cheering section included not just several other members of the team, but also former players (members of our GA state championship team), one child, girlfriends, a sibling and even parents - and we had a huge picnic table spread of food. In fact, our team won the Spirit Award!

An invitation to next August's USTA Mixed Doubles State Championships was not awarded right away, but may be forthcoming. I certainly hope so because last Friday night reminded me just how special this team is - my teammates and all the others that wish us well - and how lucky I've been to be a part of it. I'm not ready for this 2+ year USTA journey of mine to end and would love to make a third straight trip to Augusta next summer!
