Well, my friends, we were glad to be able to go to the Sectionals, held in Columbus, Georgia, but the rain prevailed!  We got swept in the 1st round by a very strong Atlanta team, then only won a few sets in our other rounds.

Because of the rain delays, we wound up having to play 4-game pro sets!  I had never heard of such, but we were not able to play two full sets (with a tiebreak if necessary).  The first team to four games would win the match!  Very unsatisfying.  It was really a test of which teams would make the mistakes, and the matches were over in 15 minutes!

But I am so grateful for being a part of this team.  We had a great time, despite the rain-shortened tournament.  Many thanks to our captain, Randy Watts, and to my doubles partner, John Alexander.  I believe we came in third among four teams.

Thanks to those of you who prayed for me and the team.  SECTIONALS TEAM PICTUREHere’s a shot of some of the team as we left the hotel this afternoon:

    A 4 game pro set??? I’ve NEVER heard of that either. Congrats to you and your team for your accomplishments!

    What a warped sense of religion: To thank those who prayed for you to win a silly tennis match!
    No wonder you have difficulties to write your second part on “Why believe”.

      That wasn’t what they were praying about at all. John, how quick you are to judge.

      They were praying for me to have opportunities to share the gospel with my teammates.

      Sorry if I failed to communicate that correctly in my blog.

        I hope you have a good enough sense of humor to appreciate my hilarity to read your reply.
        First you implied that there were actually some people who prayed for you, then you even knew exactly why they were praying for you. Must be nice to be so clairvoyant!
