It’s the beginning of September and the year end Eastman tennis tournament is well under way. There are several categories and age groups to make it fun for everyone.
The all age group, men’s doubles and women’s doubles finals will be played on Saturday morning at 9am. The teams of C. Cecchetti/Lechance play the sister team of Geri and Nancy Jachim. At the same time Tombs/R. Cecchetti take on Adie/Ericson in the mens final. A casual breakfast will be served and the match is scheduled for 9am.
The mixed doubles (all age) finals were played last night in a slight rain. The team of Adie/Lechance defeated Tombs/C. Cecchetti. The first set was an exciting one for all neither team was at their best but Adie/Lechance pulled out the 6-4 win. In the second set, although score of 6-0 doesn’t tell the story, several games went to multiple deuces and could have easily gone to Tombs/C. Cecchetti. Coach Gary made a pre match prediction of a third set tie break and he was almost right.
In the men’s doubles, combined age of 125 years or more, the team of McKune/Johnson defeated R. Cecchetti/Slabin 6-4 6-3. Bruce Johnson is have a comeback year and played outstanding tennis. Having Glen McKune as a partner didn’t hurt either. Never the less Cecchetti/Slabin put up a valiant effort only to come up short in the the end.
