And this weekend's 2016 USTA League 40+ 3.0 National Champions are ... Florida for the women and Middle States for the men
For the women, the semis found two close matches with Pacific Northwest beating Missouri Valley 3-2 and Florida beating Texas 3-2. Both were minor upsets, Florida being ever so slight underdogs on 2D and 3D and PNW pulling an upset on 1D. The final found Florida winning 3-2 as well, this one having one upset each way, and Texas getting third.
The men's semis found Intermountain pulling two upsets to win 4-1 over Florida and Middle States getting walloped on both singles courts but winning the doubles to win 3-2 over Texas. Middle States used the same tactic in the final winning 3-2 all on the doubles courts and Texas getting third.
I've updated the tally of 2016 National Champions if you want to follow along.
