Women's Results

Even the remnants of Hurricane Ida couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the 40 hardy competitors who played in the Connecticut Women’s Classic. The weather was a bit of a tease with the rain diminishing for a time but always coming back with a vengeance. Fortunately, the competitors all seemed to bring enough changes of clothing so that at least for a few minutes they could be dry.

2009 Connecticut ClassicThe hut was filled with lots of laughter and a few tears as memories of Winnie Hatch were exchanged. Winnie’s sister, Courtia Worth, who chaired the event, brought one of Winnie’s national medals and a few pictures to honor the late champion.
