Tennis in Castle Pines Village (CPV) just keeps getting better. The CPV Ladies 3.5 Red team, captained by Diane David and Karen Lang, won state during district championships against Bow Mar on August 2 at Colorado Athletic Club Monaco.
The match was tied 2-2 with doubles team Mary Elizabeth Lowen and Britney Anderson still on the court. After being down 5-9 in the third set tiebreak, the duo came back to pull off a miraculous 11-9 win to cement the team’s championship victory. “It was awesome, but I never want to be in that position again!” said Lowen.
The team headed to Salt Lake City to represent Colorado against the same level state champions from Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho during the August 21-23 weekend. Check the Castle Pines Connection Facebook page to see how they placed at sectionals – they were sure to have a great time playing.
