Combo Doubles State Champions

October 29, 2008 06:40 PM

Sometimes you have sprinkles, somtimes it rains cats and dogs and then you have days when you start looking for Noah.  The USTA South Carolina Combo Doubles State League Championship was held October 24-27 at sites on and around Daniel Island.  Play started early Friday morning but was soon interrupted by a storm system that dumped nearly nine inches of rain on the island.  Play was suspended until Saturday morning as players (and especially the tournament volunteers) anxiously watched the skies.  Fortunately Saturday didn't bring any additional rain and play resumed.  The first rounds of play were shortened into pro-sets, and by Sunday the schedule was back on track.  There were many close matches, and it seemed nearly all of them came down to tiebreakers for the third set.  Columbia  and Lexington teams vied for the most championships with both CTA's teams bringing home seven championships.  Despite the rain the championships concluded on two beautiful days, perfect for tennis.  Champions went home excited and the runners up went home vowing to take the crown next year.
