Sun Valley Women's 7.0 Sweeps at IdTA Adult 65 & Over Districts

posted Sep 7, 2014, 9:09 AM by Katie Ware   [ updated Sep 15, 2014, 4:42 PM ]

BOISE, Idaho - The Sun Valley women's 7.0 team SV-Onken completed its sweep of the Treasure Valley TV-jfeely team this Sunday with a decisive 3-0 win at the 2014 Idaho Tennis Association's IdTA Adult 65 & Over District Championships at the Boise Racquet and Swim Club.  The SV-Onken team captured the title on Saturday, September 6 with two 2-1 wins.  

The champion team was captained by Patti Onken and consisted of players Linda B. Fraser, Pam Jane Barnette, Nancy Auseklis, Lesley Bisset Hardy, Susan M. Rippon, Margaret A. Haase and JoAnne M. Frohman.

The team now waits to see if they will advance to the 65 & Over National Invitational” put on by the USTA in the spring of 2015 in Surprise, Arizona.  The team requirements to advance to the National Invitational as a representative of the Intermountain Section is to have the highest percentage of team wins based on actual team matches played throughout the entire league competition (local league through championship) for their NTRP level and gender.  Currently, the SV-Onken team is undefeated for a 100% winning percentage with a 6-0 record for the season having won 3-0 in local league and 3-0 in District play.  

The first tiebreak scenario should it occur would be the highest percentage of individual matches won based upon total matches played and the SV-Onken team holds a high 88.89% with a 16-2 record.  Idaho's only competition is Colorado which will be holding its 2014 65 & Over District Championship at the end of September.  

Idaho also has a men's 7.0 league team in the running for a chance to advance to the National Invitational.  Treasure Valley team miller holds a 100% winning percentage with a 10-0 team record from the local league season.  There were on other Idaho areas for the 7.0 men to compete against so they did not have a District Championship event.  The TV-team miller team holds a strong 93.33% individual match winning percentage with a 28-2 record.  All 65 & Over teams will be notified of advancement possibilities in the beginning of October.
