Headed to USTA League Nationals! Who won PNW 40+ Sectionals

The Pacific Northwest Section of the USTA held their 40 & over Sectionals this weekend in Spokane.  Due to smoke from the fires in Eastern Washington, matches were moved inside and shortened to 8-game pro-sets, although it appears the finals were normal best 2 of out 3.

In any case, here is who it appears won at each level.

Women

  • 2.5 - Two Seattle area teams met and ETC beat Columbia-Silver Lake 2-1
  • 3.0 - Two Oregon teams met with the Portland team beating the team from Bend 3-2, two wins in match tie-breaks
  • 3.5 - Central Washington/Hood River beat a Portland team 4-1
  • 4.0 - Amy Yee from Seattle beat IRV from Portland 5-0
  • 4.5+ - SHC from the Portland area beat a Seattle area team 3-2

This is pretty good balance on the women's side with two from Seattle and Portland and one from Central Washington.

Men
  • 2.5 - ETC made it 2 for 2 at the 2.5 level winning the round robin
  • 3.0 - Two Seattle teams met with Central Park being Amy Yee 5-0
  • 3.5 - Two Seattle teams met again with Amy Yee beating Central Park 3-2, each win in a match tie-break.  Close!
  • 4.0 - Pine Lake from the Seattle area beat a Portland team from Lake Oswego 4-1
  • 4.5+ - CAC from the Portland area beat IRV from the same area 3-2

On the men's side, Seattle nearly pulled off the sweep.

Congratulations to all the winners!
