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.
