2016 USTA League Pacific Northwest 18+ Sectionals Review
As has happened in the past, Northwest Washington (Seattle) cleaned up.
At the 2.5 level, the women saw two Seattle area teams face off with Robinswood beating TCSP 2-1 in the final. The men played round robin and that resulted in Mill Creek winning the flight losing just one court in three matches.
The 3.0 level had the women having a repeat of local playoffs and two teams from Amy Yee playing, Troung getting the 3-2 win. The men also had a repeat with TCSP beating ETC 4-1.
At the 3.5 level, the theme continued with Robinswood beating TCSP 5-0 for the women. The men found a team from Portland make the final in MAC but they lost to a Seattle team from Harbor Square.
The 4.0 level women saw a Portland team make the final in TLTC, but they lost 3-2 to TCSP from Seattle. The men saw another Seattle team from Amy Yee win 4-1 over a team that made the trek from Alaska!
The 4.5 level saw a women's team from Spokane make the final but lose 3-2 to Edgebrook from the Seattle area. The men had the first non-Seattle winner as St. John from Portland beat Mercer Island 4-1.
Last, the 5.0+ level had a women's team from TCSP in Seattle win the round robin. The men had STC from Seattle winning over a team from Bremerton.
So of the 20 finalists, 14 were from Seattle and of the 12 champions, an amazing 11 were from Seattle.
Congratulations to all. Good luck at Nationals!
