SQUIRREL!  and the players were off and swinging...

We did it!!   Back in August, SCTC beat MVTC and took the Killer Squirrel trophy to San Carlos.  On Oct 1st we hosted MVTC, and they were determined to take KS back to Mountain View.

But that was only until they met and played the SCTC team.  We raced off to a great start winning the first 10 (of 24) matches and accumulating 82 points versus 39 points for MVTC.  They made a spirited attempt in the second half to come back and won 6 of the remaining 12 matches and were even on points 73–73.  That wasn't enough to overcome the big lead SCTC had built up in the first half, so the final tally ended up being: SCTC: 168 points     MVTC: 125 points

Many thanks to all the volunteers and players and to Vinod for organizing this classic event!

Pajaro Dunes Tennis Trip

thirty two SCTC players made the pilgrimage to Monterey Bay for a weekend of perfect weather and nonstop tennis.  Well, we stopped long enough to refuel and chirp about amazing shots in our matches.  There were a few last-minute adjustments to the tourney schedule when courts were not available or players became injured.  Food was plentiful and amazing (thanks to John Elder), the bonfire blazed, and Stephanie Meyers impressed us with her story-telling.  Organizers Andrea Gruner and Jack Hesotian had planned everything perfectly and managed to deal well with unexpected situations.  Ask Jack about his technique for claiming a court!  

Pictures available soon (too much non-tennis work to do!)
