November 21, 2013
Essex Fells, NJ
The first National title of the season was held this past weekend in Connecticut.
Helen Garrett and Sandy Simmers repeated as champions, winning over Anne Beatty and Gail Moskow, 6-1, 6-1. In a feat just short of Serena Williams, those were the only two games they dropped all tournament. Garrett now holds seventeen National titles, and Simmers has nine.
Many thanks to Carolyn Tierney for all her hard work to put this together and to round up the required 8 teams. Thanks to Hope Kerr for her assistance. Also, thanks to Drew Broderick and the Essex Fells Club for their hospitality.
