Senior State League Championships Conclude

May 28, 2008 01:44 PM

            The 105-team USTA South Carolina Senior State League Championships took to the sun and clay courts of Hilton Head Island the weekend of May 12.  Other than a brief shower on Sunday, great weather prevailed.   As usual third set tiebreaks were critical to determining the champions, as matches were very close throughout the weekend. 
            The Friday evening players' oceanfront buffet set the stage for Senior Coordinator Jimmy Sain, State League Coordinator Mary Goins and the corps of volunteers, mostly from host Tennis Association of Hilton Head Island, to show their hospitality. Sea Pines Racquet Club was again a gracious host, with their facility serving as the main site for the championships. 
            The coastal teams took the lead in the championship count with Grand Strand and Hilton Head teams taking seven of the ten championships.  The winning teams, along with a couple of wildcards, will move on to the sectional  championships which will be held in Mobile, Alabama which will be held in two halves from July 19-27.  Congratulations to all of the teams who played in the championships and good luck to our representatives at the sectional championships.
