LJ Strikers Win 2018 Gate City Championships
Last week, the Lake Jeanette Division 1 Strikers clinched the 2018 City Championships in dramatic fashion. After 16 weeks of play, it all came down to the last match against first place Pinetop. The Strikers had a large task at hand. To win the city champs, they had to win the match 4-1. Not an easy task when you look at the teams on paper. Pinetop has a mammoth roster. Twenty five players, seven 4.5 players, and no 3.5 players. Where as the Strikers only have fifteen players, three 4.5 players and six 3.5 players (including subs). But, matches are not played on paper! Everyone rose to the occasion, played fearless tennis and came up with an extraordinary victory
Congratulations Ladies!! Your club is very proud of you.
