Mixed Doubles Districts Splash to Finish

August 24, 2005 10:18 PM

CHARLESTON (from TennisLink) -- The USA League South Carolina District Mixed Doubles Championships got a little damp on finals day Monday (22nd), but finished with a flurry of very close team matches. Each of the seven finals played ended in a 2-1 victory. And the one rain-postponed final played later in the week also had a 2-1 result.
Charleston Tennis Center was headquarters site for the championships.

With teams from throughout the state competing, it was fitting that championships be well distributed. Columbia Tennis League teams captured three titles, Lexington and Hilton Head Island two and Greenwood, Upper Piedmont and York County one each.

The champions now advance to Southern Sectionals Oct. 21-23 in Cary NC.

Here are the semifinals and finals results:
