4.0-4.5 Singles Champions – Midtown-Palatine 1
For the last couple of years, one of Midtown-Palatine’s teams has met RC Lake Bluff in the finals of the 4.0-4.5 Singles League. Krisztina Anderko mixes up her teams from year to year and this year added Alpna Yousfi to the roster. RC Lake Bluff has some strong singles players and added Michelle Ihlanfeldt to their roster. Unfortunately I was not able to make it to the match to watch the players engage with one another on the court but I know they were running and working their strengths while defending their weaknesses. Alpna Yousfi played and won against Michelle Ihlandfeldt on court 1. Leslie Leonardi (RCLB) held it together against Jennifer Lenahan (MTP 1). Renee Buxton (MTP 1) had a win over Lynn Bruch (RCLB) and between Bethanne McFadden (RCLB) and Keeley Hart (MTP 1), Bethanne won but in a 3rd set match tie-breaker which gave MTP 1 the extra set they needed to become the champions of the NCW4.0-4.5 league.
