The Woodlands’ Raquettes won the Texas Section Championship of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) 3.5 age 18-and-over division held in Dallas Aug. 2-4 and will advance to the national competition in Tucson, Ariz., Oct. 25-27.
The Racquettes’ current undefeated record of 19-0 includes matches from the local season through the Section Championships.
Renee Atkinson, North Houston (NoHo) USTA league coordinator, said, “They are a great group of women who take the sport seriously but still exemplify great sportsmanship while having a lot of fun doing so. To win the way they did-- 10-0 in regular season, 3-0 in local playoffs and 6-0 at the Section Championships is almost unheard of. I was so proud to have them represent NoHo USTA in Dallas, and I know they will represent us well in Tucson.”
Team members include Woodlands residents Captain Robyn Kralich, Co-captain Lisa Blanchard, Tracy Cassady, Sharon Callahan, Robin Gawronska, Yvonne Grouls, Rosanna Guzman, Charlene Hanson, Seema Hede, Dee Huie, Teresa Manherz, Sharon Saucier and Valeria Vizcardo, Catherine Blevins of Katy and Diva Davis of Houston.
