Recap Texas 18 & Over Sectionals

Winning 4.5 Men had 8 self-rated players. All other TLA #1 rated teams win.

USTA tennis league stats Florida

Texas Sectional Championship - 18 and Over

Women

4.5 - #1 Dallas won the Sectional over #2 Austin.

3.5 - #1 Wild Dallas won the Championship over #5 San Antonio.

Men

4.5 - In a very interesting result, Abilene, which was not in the Strength Rating top five, finished 2nd in their flight to #3 Dallas and qualified for the knockout stage.

Abilene beat #2 Houston in the semis 4-1. Then beat #4 San Antonio in the final 4-1. Both were very big upsets in terms of TLA Strength Ratings, especially at the 4.5 level.

We looked at other TLA reports and found that 8 of Abilene's 11 players are self rated. A little more research showed that Abilene's roster holds four Division 3 college players (McMurry and Hardin-Simmons), 1 two-time Texas high school state champion, and 1 college assistant coach. It will be interesting to see how the team does at Nationals.

3.5 - #1 Dallas over #2 Houston for the Section Championship.


Congratulations to the new USTA Section champions.
