Wilmington, DE

Women’s 45+
Cynthia Dardis and Amy Shay added to their impressive array of Masters titles, beating 2005 National Women’s champion Kerri Delmonico and Hall-of-Famer and four-time National Women’s champion Cindy Prendergast for the 45+ championship. This is Dardis/Shay’s fifth 45+ title; they’ve won it every year since the tournament’s inception. Prior to that, they won the now defunct 40+ age group in 2009 and 2010, and they added a 50+ title to their resumes this season. They each have one other Masters title won with different partners. Dardis won the 2015 50+ title with Sue Tarzian, and Shay took the 2016 Husband/Wife 50+ crown with her husband, Chris, beating none other than Cynthia and Ken Dardis in the finals.

Diane Straus won six National Women’s titles (1986-1987 Pat Butterfield, 1991, 1993, 1996-1997 Robin Fulton), and has also amassed 12 Masters crowns.
