Photo Gallery: Island Country Club crowns tennis champions

Champions were crowned in two recent tournaments.

The Womens Open level doubles championship was won by Angela Segler and Eileen Fisher over Pat Gill and Joan Boisse.

The Mens “B” level doubles was captured by Mel Daly and Joe Hoffman, taking out Corky Trebilcock and Mike Kanan in the final.

The “A” level Mens Doubles saw Rick Eichman and Brock Wilson holding off Ray Jean and Mo Johnson to win the title.

In the 2011 season’s final tournament Rick and Margi Eichman defeated Deb and Mo Johnson to take the Mixed Doubles crown.

All of the club championships were decided by playing a round robin qualifying event, followed by a single-elimination semifinal and final match.

The Island Country Club also hosted its 2nd annual Open Mixed Doubles Championship, with 30 players vying for spots in the finals of two events. The championship matches were played on Sunday afternoon in front of a crowd of appreciative spectators.

Both finals went to the limit and were won in tight third-set tiebreakers, with both tiebreakers going 10-8.

The Open Championship went to Rachel Schenk and Mark Schusterman in an exciting come-back win, besting Mo and Deb Johnson 2-6, 6-4, 1-0.

The consolation event was won by Eric Sonnenberger and Susan Furek over Nicki and Doug Davis after two hours of hotly contested tennis, 6-1,4-6,1-0.
