Turnout good for weekend mixed doubles tennis tourney

— Local tennis players flocked to the Tennis Center last weekend for the biggest Steamboat Mixed Doubles championships ever.

“It was a tremendous draw,” said Tennis Center President Jim Swiggart. “This tournament seems to grow every year, but this was by far our largest turnout for it.”

The bracket with the most players was the 6.5-7.0 group, which drew 13 teams. The team of Bernard Ramsey and Breanne Murray defeated Tony Connell and Marlyn Myers in the championship match by a score of 7-5, 6-1.

There was also a large field in the 8.0 bracket where nine teams battled for the top honor.

Sandy Thrasher and Wendell Day defeated Diana Sutton and Ralph Toblemann in the match 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Other mixed teams earning crowns over the weekend included Kristin Toy and Dylan Roberts in the 6.0 bracket; Andrew Krueger and Kelli Parnell in the 7.5 bracket; Carol Baily and Bernard Ramsey in the 8.5 bracket; Bill Krueger and Molly Orr in the 9.0 bracket; and Jim and Stacy Swiggart in the 9.5 bracket.

Tournament action will continue this weekend at the Tennis Center as the Prince Cup comes to town.

The second-year event is for beginner and intermediate players and is sponsored by Prince.

The tournament will take place from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday. Top placers will get a free Prince racket.

Call the Tennis Center at 879-8400 for more information.
