WTT tennis back in full force
by Misty Volaski
World Team Tennis returns this spring, with both new and returning
players. In the second week of play, Tara Saylor's Red Division
Gentes de Tenis remains the only youth team in the WTT league
to be undefeated.
Gentes de Tenis bested Better Than Da Rest with a 25-18 victory,
thanks in part to Thomas O'Reilly of Gentes, who beat Lindsey
Lochner of Better Than Da Rest, 6-1.
Luke Sommer of Better had a 6-1 win against Nathalie Seleslags
- the only big win for Better Than Da Rest.
The Cabbage Patch Kids' win over the Rack Attacks would prove
to be a big dissappointment for the Rack Attacks, who had won
their first match substantially. Caleb Sommer led the Cabbage
Patch Kids to their first win of the season, 29-12.
Gavin Garrison and Casey Robbins (Rack Attack) were the only
doubles on the team to pull off a win against Sean O'Brien and
Patrick O-Reilly (Cabbage Patch Kids), 6-5.
The Blue Division's Bert and Ernie Inc. found a fault in Without
a Fault, beating them 28-14. Again, the losing team won only
one match - Parker Laszlo of Without a Fault outplayed Bert and
Ernie Inc.'s Andrew Hartmann, 6-4.
WTT Adult Division
The Unknowns dominated the 0-2 Serves Up, 32-16, while fellow
first-place team Du Rons narrowly defeated Golden Hawk, 31-29.
Laura Whitney and Kari Cantu of the Unknowns had an 8-1 victory
over Serves Up's Rosanna Garrison and Kit Skare.
The 1-1 Misfits had a convincing win over the Fila-Goods, 33-21.
The Misfits' Rick Thompson beat Rob Blaine of the Fila-Goods,
6-0, but Jamie Kinser and Perry Johnson of FIla-Goods retailiated,
beating Heather Havins and Darian O'Brien (Misfits), 8-7.
