El Gancho squash pro
What a great two days of squash we had at the Santa Fe Open tournament at El Gancho! And we didn't have to worry about the weather, like the tennis group.
Everyone had a great time visiting and eating and playing lots of squash. Just ask the 3.0 guys and gal.
We had a good group of newbies this year and they played really well. Congrats to Max and Julia, who played great during the two days.
The winners and diehard players in the 3.0 division had to play four matches on Saturday, and it came down to the last match.
With Ted, Joe and Dick all within a game of each other, Dick needed to win his final and fourth match of the day. Joe didn't give up easily and it went the distance with Dick outlasting Joe and taking first place. Ted played well after his first match and finished a strong second after we went to the third tie breaker to determine first and second place. Congrats!!!!
Our main 5.0 event came down to Chris and Richard playing for first and second place. As always, this was a great match to watch and they didn't disappoint with their stellar play. Chris ended up the winner and Richard took second place.
In the 4.0 bracket, John Bunch played his second straight year in the finals and lost to Jeff Pollock. I think John would agree, it wasn't his best game of the tournament and he has vowed to work harder and get into better shape for next year's finals! Look out field.
Most of all, thanks to all who participated, to the sponsors and to El Gancho for hosting the tournament!
Hope to see you all next time!
