On January 13th, Helen Garrett and Mary Jane Parks, newcomers to the 70s, swept to victory by defeating Nancy Libby and Gail Reifsnyder in the finals of the 70+ Women’s Nationals, 6-1, 6-0. Helen and Mary Jane have the habit of winning their 1st eligible age year. Congratulations.
Nancy Libby has the distinction of being in the finals four years in a row and five out of the last six.
The draw was the magic number of eight as required by the APTA. We had perfect weather and the entrants are a fit and fun group. We always look forward to the competition and sharing the day with our age group.
