Our Super Seniors Shine at Southern Sectionals Championships

April 5, 2006 02:05 PM

South Carolina shined brightly at the 2005 Super Senior Southern Sectional Championships in Pelham AL this past weekend. With 97 teams in the 60s and 70s age groups at the 3.0 – 4.5 levels, South Carolina took top honors in three divisions and was finalist in a fourth, matching North Carolina's three champions and one runnerup. Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas and Mississippi each won one division. Kentucky, Alabama and Louisiana had none.

All of South Carolina's champions and the finalist were teams from the Hilton Head Island leagues.

60s 3.0 Men: SC-A/Hilton Head Island-Dataw – Terry Lurtz, captain - Champion
70s 3.0 Men: SC/Hilton Head Island – Bob Hilton, captain - Champion
70s 3.5 Women: SC/Hilton Head Island – Catherine Haight, captain - Champion
70s 3.0 Women: SC/Hilton Head Island – Nancy Lownes, captain – Finalist

In addition to the champions and finalist, South Carolina had four group runnerups.
