Victoria Cran and Shana Roberts Tops at Pioneer Valley Open
March 17, 2017
The 8th Annual Pioneer Valley Women’s Open, hosted at the Field Club of Longmeadow, was a fun-filled day with 14 tenacious teams and 28 lovely ladies! The temperature was well below freezing but that didn’t deter our teams; however, injuries and illness kept some from playing this year (you were missed).
Shana Roberts and Victoria Cran won this year’s tournament by defeating Linda Brenske and Megan Shapiro-Ross in the final, 6-2, 6-3. The Consolation winners, Barbara Coster and Alethea Desrosiers, defeated Asa Nilsson and Barbara Horne in a three-set entertaining match: 6-4, 2-6, 7-6. Kate Morneau and Hilary Meyers lost their first match but won the rest for the Consolation Reprieve title. Despite a win or a loss, lots of fun was had on the paddle courts and in the hut!
Tournament directors Asa Nilsson and myself, thank everyone for helping to make the day a great one, from the participants, to the spectators, to the caterer and bakers, and of course, the hut helpers: Jeff Morneau, Per Nilsson, and Gerrit Toebes.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the women who participated!
