Wisconsin District 9.0 Super Senior Women Win Midwest Championship

October 20, 2006 11:06 PM

On the last weekend of September, the Wisconsin 9.0 Super Senior Women’s team claimed the Section Championship and will represent the Midwest at the Super Senior National Championships in April 2007.The team members include: Elizabeth Barnhill, captain, Rita Daniels, Nancy Heiden, Cathy Kestle, Barb Mueller, Sherry Ploor, and Judy Terry. Three of the players are from the Madison area and four from the Milwaukee area.

The Championship matches were very close with Wisconsin winning over Ohio Valley by losing one less set in the weekend competition. Several matches were nail-biters with one team pulling out a third set tiebreak victory after being down 7-9 but finally winning at 12-10. Another match that needed to be won in 2 sets had our team down 4-5 but coming back to win it 7-5, keeping us one set better than Ohio Valley.

This team represents the best of Wisconsin’s “super senior” players. Each of them regularly participates in Leagues, Midwest tournaments, Intersectionals, or National Tournaments. By being tournament tough, they were able to edge out the competition in very tight matches.
