So next weekend is the Tri Level Sectional and I am imploring your help so Team Madison and Team Bazan can sweep the weekend. If we don’t win I guess I would cheer for the Fort Worth teams.
Should be some great teams and it is always hard to plan to play against teams in a State event because you are lucky if you have seen one or two of them. The easy thing about this is there are only so many lineup options. My team has 7 players so the only choice I have is our rotation at 4.0. Justin has 3 at each level so he has a little flexibility but if I was him I would play Eugene Davis until he falls over from exhaustion.
Lower Tri Level
College Station: 4.0s Eric Schroeder and Ryan Hillestad seem to be strength but entire team doesn’t have a lot of results. Could be not so good or a pack of good new ringers.
SETX: 3.5s look to be strengths with Michael Getz and Shamus Darden being somewhat regular tourney players.
Fort Worth: Very balanced team, 4.0 Tom Hillebrecht has great record at singles and their other 4.0 Timothy Hatcher is a recent bump up like myself from 3.5. Jonathan you played him any advice?
NETX. Very good looking team on paper, glad we play them last. 4.0s William Rohrer and Erik Fleming were at sectionals last Spring. 3.5 Charles Lusk also made it to sectionals at 3.5 last year.
Upper Tri Level
Much was made that the Austin and San Antonio teams are allowed to use before end of the year ratings but I think there are other teams that can hang with them.
This flight is stacked with Austin, FW Wild and Dallas. FW Wild has Prather and Delira playing 3.5 dubs, they should be very tough to beat, they did lose to the FW team of Aranda/Kinson in a 3rd set tiebreaker though.
San Antonio will be the favorite but NETX will pose a threat I think. College Station has Omon Dibua playing dubs at 4.5 so they shouldn’t be counted out here.
This will be a tough fight between Houston and Fort Worth. Both teams are stacked with depth at all levels and that should be a great match. Only 3 teams in the flight and no schedule listed not sure if there is going to be an additional area sending a team or possibly a wild card.
Feel free to leave any advice about any other players you know about.
