The Castle Pines Village (CPV) ladies 2.5 tennis teams, captained by Julie Berris, have had quite a season. Her United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Colorado Tennis Association (CTA) Twilight leagues both made it to districts finishing just shy of state titles. Most recently, her CTA Summer Daytime league not only made it to districts but also finished in first place, giving the team state title honors.
“This was a great end to the tennis season for CPV. Our USTA league and CTA Twilight teams both made it to districts (state) and lost in the final game. It was nice to be first in this league after two seconds,” said Berris.
For this Summer Daytime league, the state title is the ultimate prize as no sectional or national competition is played. Congratulations to the ladies on their state championship!
