The first annual Fred Bonney Tournament was held at the Tellico Village Wellness Center soft courts on Sunday 11/5/17.  It was a great day for playing and watching tennis and if you were not there you missed some great tennis.

This year there was an 8.0, 7.0 and an added court of 6.5.  In the 6.5 court Riley Woody and Brad Barberee squared off against Sheri Palko and Larry Byrkit. Riley has really improved her game this year and Riley/Brad held on for a 6-3, 6-2 win.

This was the Woody family’s year to shine for in the 8.0 court, Kim Woody-Rusty Woody went against Dawn Peltzer and David Case.  David was running at about 75%. With the injury, two teams agreed to play a 8 game Pro set. Even with the injury, Dawn Peltzer and David Case started out up 3-1. But then the Woody’s got their game untracked and came from behind to win 8-4.

In the 7.0 court we had four teams, Kelly Priestley-Jim Doyel, Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth, Janie Ehmig-Terry Bannon, and Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann.  This Court played a round robin 8 game pro-set.  This allows a team which might have a bad set to still come back and win and this is exactly what happened. So for two years in a row we have had two teams come from behind and win.  Last year it was Dawn Peltzer- David Case on the 8.0 court and this year we watched this unfold again on the 7.0 court. The key is in a round robin if more than one team ends up with the same number of wins then you go to the fewest games lost as the winner.

In the first round Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth, defeated Kelly Priestley-Jim Doyel 8-4. Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann defeated Janie Ehmig-Terry Bannon 8-4.

Second round saw Kelly Priestley-Jim Doyel defeat Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann 8-4. Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth defeated Janie Ehmig-Terry Bannon 8-4.

In these two rounds it seems the numbers 8-4 were a common theme.  But then the third round took place and it turned out much different.

The third round saw Kelly Priestley-Jim Doyel defeat Janie Ehmig-Terry Bannon 8-2 and at this point the Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth match with Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann was still going tied 4-4.  All Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth had to do was win and the tournament was theirs.  Ya-right.  With the energizer bunny on the court (Mark Sodemann) and the back board (Jane Smith) the match stayed even to 7-7.  All of a sudden Jane had her ankle tighten up and she was limping around to make shots.  Things were looking good for Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth at this point but you could see that they were running out of gas.  If they could win they were in, but if Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann won and because the match had gone to 7-7 they had too many losses and Kelly Priestley-Jim Doyel would come from behind to win. By now the tournament was in its four hour and the players were running on fumes. Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann won the next game and it went to 8-7. As the last game came down to the end it ended up with Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth hitting the last shot into the net and Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann won the set.

Now the problem was to have to tell Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann that with all that effort Kelly Priestley-Jim Doyel actually won the tournament with 14 loses, while Laurie Jones-Rick Meckstroth had 17, and Jane Smith-Mark Sodemann had 19.

Thanks to all the player for a great afternoon of tennis, and if you missed it, your bad. Come on out next year!
