NC Men’s 4.5 Champions – RC Lake Bluff
This year the Men’s 4.5 and Men’s Open teams were from the same clubs. The Racquet Club of Lake Bluff (RCLB) and College Park East (CPAC-E) both had players playing in both finals. Would those players have enough in the tank to play a 2nd match, both physically and mentally? One could only hope. RCLB didn’t have it easy on court 1. They won in 3. But on courts 3, 5 and 6, RCLB won in 2 sets. CPAC-E secured a win on court 2 and because RCLB had already secured a 4-1 win, court 4 was called with CPAC leading 4-2 in the 3rd set. College Park made a valient effort, coming close…but it’s some of those deuce games that can make a difference in the outcome. RC Lake Bluff won, taking the trophy back from the defending champions, College Park.
