2007 Maryland State Singles

The 2007 Maryland State Singles was held at the Severna Park Racquet and Fitness Club on March 10th, after taking a year off due to hosting the National Masters Singles in 2006.  Players rallied to the cause when they were emailed and informed that the event was in danger of being cancelled due to lack of attendance.  Thankfully, 40 players filled 4 divisions, and Maryland players were shut out by the combined presence of Virginia and New York. Andy Shad proved too strong for a tough Open division, defeating 21 year-old Victor LoPierre in two lopsided games.  LoPierre came back […]

2006 3-Wall Nationals
