Shanahan-James Win Plain Jane Tournament

  • March 13, 2017

Plain Jane 2017Hi Ladies,

Thank you all for playing in the first Plain Jane tournament.  It was such a fun and surprisingly relaxed day for me.  What a great group of ladies!  I definitely have to give a shout out to Rich (Goldfeder) for handling the draw and making sure that matches went out as quickly and smoothly as possible.  I will definitely host next year and will keep you posted on the date once it is decided.  For those of you who had to leave early here is a recap of the finals.

Karen Aranow and Laura Lenahan played Karen Owen and Margo Chase-Wells in the quarter reprieve. It was a close match but Karen and Margo won 8-7.  Nuffy Murphy and Louise Nicolosi played Paula Bingham and Andrea Fenton in the consolation reprieve and Nuffy and Louise won (I don’t have the final score …Rich left…).  DeDe Boyd and Sara Clunan played Carolyn Matthes and Jeanne Hayes in the consolation and Carolyn and Jeanne won 8-3.

Maria Shanahan and M L James played Sarah Davidson and Kristi Poehlmann in the main draw finals.  The first set was great with long, exciting points.  It made me want to play more and get better!   Unfortunately, Kristi fell in the first game of the second set and her ankle got twisted in the snow board.  The match ended and Maria and M.L. won the tournament.

Kristi, I hope that you are feeling better today and that it is nothing serious.  Hope to see you out on the courts soon!
Thanks again and hope that you all enjoy the remainder of the paddle season!
