Team Crush Wins Women's 2.5 National Championship

October 3, 2005 11:35 AM

For most tennis players, the Spring season was well behind us by July and we were enjoying our summer league play. But, there was one Spring team from the Cary area that was still playing and playing strong! That team was Team Crush, the 2.5 Women's team playing in the Cary USA Tennis League based out of the Cary Tennis Park and Captained by Tamra Aguilar.

They succeeded in winning the North Carolina bid in June, moving them on to Sectional play in Charleston, SC in July. Competing against other State championship teams from the Southern Section they deemed success, and earned a spot at the USTA National Championships in Palm Springs, California beginning September 29th. After three grueling days, Team Crush soundly defeated the Intermountain Section in the final round match on Sunday, October 2nd to take the 2.5 National Champions title!

This is the first Cary USA team to compete at the National Championships. They represented the Triangle, North Carolina, and the Southern Section. At Nationals, they competed against Sectional winners from the seventeen Sections that make up the United States Tennis Association. The Southern Section of which North Carolina is a part, represents 25% of the tennis players in the US.

The WWTA helped sponsor a portion of the team’s trip to California in September with a donation equal to the registration fees also donated to the team upon their quest to win the Sectional Tournament. But, a tremendous boost was given to the team by the North Carolina Tennis Association in the form of a $1500 stipend to help them will their quest. In addition, the team was able to raise money through friends, family, and local businesses who helped sponsor them.
Congratulations to Team Crush for making it to the highest level of USTA team competition! These are memories that will surely last each team member a lifetime!
