APTA Mixed Tournament – EPTC Shone Well

  • 12/11/2023

A solid day for EPTC paddlers and many thanks to Kristi Sapia and Karen Bachand for organizing a well attended tournament.

Alex Pite and Dan DaRos are a formidable team and advanced to the Championship finals to square up against another EPTC student/teacher duo Meredith Ryan-Reid and Geoff Cartier.  The match was far closer than the score – Reid/Cartier outlasted Pite/DaRos 6-1, 6-2.   WAY TO GO.

In the consolation bracket, our friends from Guilford, Maureen Considine teamed with Eric Halbower to face Kristi Sapia and yours truly.  After all of the long points settled, Kristi and I prevailed 6-3, 6-1

In the Quarter Reprieve, it was an age old adage of youth vs guile.  The young to-be-married duo of Emily Anderson and Morgan White battled the wily Mary Liz James and Johnny Glenn.  In this instance, guile eeked out a win over youth 7-6, 6-3

Finally, in the Consolation Reprieve, the Stonington COMO team of Melanie Cava and Todd Drevo faced NY-native Amanda Gallagher and Ray Zimmerman.  Cava/Drevo prevailed 6-4,6-1.
