Dan Johnson captained a 55 & Over 8.0 Men’s team out of Peachtree Tennis Club. Dan recruited Andrew Schrand along for their successful ride to a 2nd place finish at Sectionals!
2019 SUMMER 2.5 WOMEN 18 & OVER
District Champions! What a season! The PHTH 2.5 Women dominated their competition with 7 wins and only 1 loss during the season. As League Champions they advanced to District Playoffs where, once again, they ruled the competition by winning all three of their matches! The team headed to State Playoffs to face West Hills Athletic Club/Kalamazoo for the State title. Two of the three courts ended up in a third set super-breaker, and after close battles the team narrowly missed the win. Unbelievable season, 2.5 Women – be proud of your efforts!

2019 WINTER 9.0 MIXED 40 & OVER
League Champs! Going into the final match, the team was in a must-win-all-3-courts situation. Plus, the last place team needed to win their final match to push the PHTH into first. Both of those happened, so the PHTH edged ahead to win by one individual/court win. Congrats! Districts will be held at Wessen Indoor Tennis in Pontiac on April 27th — good luck!
On the team: Tracy Carleton (captain), Jason Go, Betty Latosinsky, Carl Preston, Andrew Schrand, Barb Lynch, Mike Cansfield, Tiffany Odlum, James Hepting, Steve Pillon, Kristy Kinney, Kelli Schafer, Char Sweeney

League Champs! District Champs! State Champs! MIDWEST CHAMPS! The team advanced to Midwest Sectionals on October 5 & 6 in Fort Wayne, IN where they won with a 3 & 1 record. Their only loss was to Indiana, and their total of 9 match wins and only 3 matches lost earned them the title. Congratulations! The team advanced to NATIONALS in Mobile, Alabama. WELL DONE!
