Robbie Azzarelli and Kristen Victory captured the title in the June 8th STC Blind Draw Mixed Doubles tournament with a 5-1 win over Tim Aikman and Maggie Ferraro in the final. For Azzarelli it was his fifth consecutive Blind Draw win, while Victory, a new club member, won in her first attempt. Azzarelli and Victory almost didn't make it to the final, having to win a tiebreaker 7-5 to defeat Ravi Vinayak and Kelly Arp in one semifinal, while Aikman and Ferraro had an easier time knocking off the top-seeded team of John Lucas and Veronica Hernandez 5-1.
A total of 15 teams enjoyed the beautiful weather and lively action. Many thanks to Joe McNulty, Kathleen McKenna, and some volunteers for getting the courts ready, and for Diana Shields for providing the lovely breakfast spread.
The next tournament will be the Lackawanna County Open on July 11-14.
