2015 USTA League Mixed Nationals update - 18+ 2.5, 7.0, 9.0, and 40+ 6.0 and 8.0

The Nationals for Adult play (18+, 40+, 55+) finished up a couple weeks ago, but this weekend finds the Mixed Nationals in full flight.  And as of this morning the semis are about to start.

In Tucson, the 18 & over division is playing with the 2.5, 70, and 9.0 levels.

The 2.5 level had only 4 teams and one flight, and it appears Mid-Atlantic won the flight and thus the Nationals title over Southern, Caribbean, and Florida.  Congrats Mid-Atlantic!

The 7.0 level finds Midwest playing Southern and Caribbean playing Southern Cal, two of these close with Midwest beating out Middle States (both 3-1) and Southern beating out Eastern on head-to-head despite losing more courts.

At the 9.0 level, the semis find Southern Cal playing Mid-Atlantic and Missouri Valley playing Florida.  There were just 3 flights due to 15 teams being there and Florida advanced as a wildcard after finishing second to Mid-Atlantic, also losing the tie-breaker on head-to-head despite losing fewer courts.

The 40 & over division is playing in Surprise with the 6.0 and 8.0 levels.

The 6.0 finds all undefeateds from their flights Southern Cal facing Intermountain and Southern playing Pacific Northwest.

The 8.0 level also has unblemished teams in the semis with Texas playing Florida and Southern Cal facing Mid-Atlantic.

Good luck teams!
