2019 LSSF vs MTC NC 4.5 final

Posted by on Monday, 13 May, 2019

The Fullerton Classic was a dynamite NC 4.5 finals. This is the reference we use in the city when LSSF plays MTC.

The finals at 5 seasons was everything and more you want in a match to end the season. To put it into perspective, the last match finished around 2:30pm, there were multiple 3 setters and a match that had a tie-breaker going to 14-12.

With many moments of opportunity for both teams LSSF was able to grab a few more and swing the match to a 4-2 victory.

Congratulations to both teams for a great 2018-19 season!

2019 NC Girls High School League

Posted by on Monday, 13 May, 2019

This year’s Libertyville HS Girl’s team is the most balanced they’ve ever had. Both of their two teams made it to the the finals.In the end, It was Lifesport Libertyville and Racquet club of Lake Bluff in the finals, a rematch for the third straight year. . Line 1 was the most highly contested with all four players giving it their best. It came down to the third set with Libertyville prevailing. Line 3 went to a strong RCLB team, so it came down to the final match. Everyone was cheering for their respective team. The Libertyville team took the first set. The second set was neck and neck as RCLB showed they never give up, saving 10 match points! But in the end, at 5-4 the LIB girls closed out the win at 6-4. Kudos to both teams, and congratulations to the the High School Programming led by team captain and Director Gian.

2018 runner up CPAC came out victorious after a tough battle with MTB in the 4.5 division. After splitting 3 total matches to 3, CPAC had two straight set wins and MTB had only one. Thus, CPAC walked away with the title winning 8 combined sets to 7.

Just like the 4.5 division, men’s open division was a nail biter between NSRC and 2018 runner up CPAC. Exact same scenario as the 4.5 division, NSRC and CPAC split 2 total matches to 2. The match was decided by the only straight set win out of 4 matches on court 2 by Frank Chen and Tony Larson of CPAC. The division title would have gone the other way if NSRC were to forced a third set on court 2 as NSRC had more overall games than CPAC.

2019 LSSF vs CPAC-E 3.0 finals

Posted by on Monday, 13 May, 2019

In a great 3.0 final LSSF bested CPAC (E) 4-0. This score is far from what took place out on the courts at host club CPAC (W). The matches were as tight and even as they could be. Due to this dynamic it really came down to a few crucial points at the right moments that put the momentum in LSSF’s hands to take the title.
Congratulations to both teams as they left it all out on the court in the final.

2019 3.5 LSSF

Posted by on Thursday, 9 May, 2019

LSSF bested RTTC in the 3.5 NC finals 5-1. The final score does not reflect the hard fought efforts by both teams. There were many moments of back and forth that had the team supporters bitting their nails up until the end.

It was a final that represents what the CITA is all about- fun competition and respectable, fair play. A wonderful match to watch! Thanks go out to GRC for being an outstanding host site for the 3.5 finals as well. Congratulations to both squads for a having a great 2018-19 CITA season!

NC Men’s Open – RC Lake Bluff

RC Lake Bluff Men’s Open Champions


Once the Men’s 4.5 matches were done, some of the players from the 4.5 teams moved over to their Open teams. RC Lake Bluff and College Park were going to see who had more fire power and finesse. Would the players who just played in the 4.5s still have enough energy to play up to the level demanded of them? On court 4, clearly Peter Krizman and Steve Paulson (RCLB), still had enough in the tank because they were the 1st to come off the court, after playing court 3 in their 4.5 match. They played agains Trevor Desilva and John Metzger, who also played in the 4.5s with different partners. Court 2 came off next with Josh Leighton and Josh Graves (CPAC) pulling out a close win against Jordan Verbauwhedeand Peter Morawiecki. Matches tied 1-1. Court 1 came off next 6-4, 7-5 to RCLB which left court 3, which RCLB won in 3 sets in a tie-breaker. This is RC Lake Bluffs 2nd win in a row. Congratulations to both team for stellar play, nerves of steel and a competitive spirit.

Racquet Club of Lake Bluff Men's 4.0 Champions

Racquet Club of Lake Bluff Men’s 4.0 Champions


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.

Libertyville Men's 4.0 Champions

Libertyville Men’s 4.0 Champions


As soon as the Men’s 3.5 matches came off the courts, the Men’s 4.0 teams from Libertyville (LIB) and Midtown-Palatine (MTP) moved on to the courts. The Libertyville team, seeing their Men’s 3.5 team lose, steeled their nerves to create a different outcome. Courts 1 and 6 were done in 2 sets with LIB winning court 1 and MTP winning court 6. All the other matches were heading towards 3 sets. One by one they came off the court. The last match left was court 4. Libertyville was ahead 3-2 in matches, but if Midtown-Palatine won this match, that would mean matches tied, sets tied, time to count games. No one was quite sure that the set scores were for court 4. Everyone knew it was close. All they knew is that with all the other match games counted, LIB had 57 games and MTP had 55 games. Upon counting court 4’s sets 1 and 2, LIB was ahead by only one game. Everyone crowded around court 4’s viewing area. It was 4-4. Liberyville won their serve – 5-4. Midtown-Palatine’s turn. At 15-40, they had match points against them. They squeaked out another point to make it 30-40, but a missed shot gave Libertyville the win and the Championship! Way to give it your all!!!

NC Men’s 3.5 Champions – Midtown-Bannockburn

Midtown-Bannockburn Men's 3.5 Champions

Midtown-Bannockburn Men’s 3.5 Champions


All of the Men’s Playoff matches were played out of College Park’s West location inside the Marriott Lincolnshire. The Men’s 3.5 matches started at 10 AM with Libertyville and Midtown-Bannockburn ready to play. In 2016, Midtown-Bannockburn (MTB) came close to making it to the finals, only to be defeated by River Trails by 2 games. This year it was all MTB…but not without some concern (yes, Todd Seltzer, I heard you were pacing the floor). MTB won court 2 in 2 sets, then court 4 in 3 sets, so they were feeling pretty good about their chances. Court 1 was a close match with MTB winning 6-4, 6-4 securing the Championship. And court 4 decided their match with a 3rd set match tie-breaker which MTB won 12-10. Congratulations to Midtown-Bannockburn for their first time win in the Men’s 3.5s!
