Maybe it takes having women on the team to win as The Divas, the only team with women on it this season, captained by Diana Zarreke, clawed their way into the finals of this season's team tennis competition and pulled off a victory in the final night of play. The La La Lads had the season high in points going into the finals but couldn't hold off the surge of The Divas. Congratulations to their team, as pictured clockwise: John Myers (kneeling), Dre' Baez, Jan Moennig, Diana Zarreke, Mark Akchin and Chris Goldsmith.
Congratulations to Darrell Creighton as he captained the String Theorists to the Fall Team Tennis Championship. It was a great season that saw two teams tied for second, requiring a tie breaker based on number of games won throughout the entire season to decide who made the finals. That is a close competition folks!!!
The team, as pictured from left to right consisted of: Mark Akchin, Kim Byrd, Darrell Creighton, Ron Loida and Mark Haggett. Alberto Murillo missed the photo opportunity.
