That being said, all we have left at this point in the 2016 season is mixed nationals. This weekend has two sites in action: Tucson has the 18 and over 7.0 and 9.0 while Surprise has 40 and over 6.0 and 8.0.
The 18/7.0 team is out of Dallas. A quick check of their results were interesting. Didn’t drop a line in during the season and then lost to the second place team at cities. Got to sectionals as a wild card and won it with a very short bench. Don’t see them winning it all but with a favorable flight they might make Sunday. The 18/9.0 team is out of Fort Worth. A couple of Dallas regulars on this squad but not one of those Dallas West teams.
The 40/6.0 team is also out of Dallas. I hate to even speculate what 6.0 mixed tennis looks like but they have what looks to be a rough flight so enjoy the scenery in the Phoenix suburbs. The 40/8.0 team is out of Fort Worth but has a distinctly Dallas look to it. Not sure how this team does. They have Kelly so they likely start up 1-0 in a 40s division but they look thin after that. I don’t see any high end talent at any level. Someone’s gonna have to really show up for this team to go far.
Good luck to the DFW mixed participants this weekend.
