October 21, 2008 01:24 PM

The Lynchburg Men 4.5 Team once again swung their way to National competition! The New Dirty Bastens won the Lynchburg local league, advancing to the Va. District Tournament. There, they played their way through to win the Va. District Championship, and advancement to the Mid Atlantic Sectional Tournament, held in Newport News in August. After hard matches and great play, they were awarded the MAS Championship trophy and were given the opportunity to advance to the Big Game in Arizona- USTA National League Championships.

10 players made the trip and with racquets in tow, arrived to play three teams in their flight. Winning all three matches with ease, they advanced to the Semi-Final playoff. With hard fought matches on each court, the "ever hated" third set tiebreak did not prove to be their friend. Even so, this team went to win, and placed third in the overall tournament championship! Congratulations to each player- we are proud of you!!

The New Dirty Bastens represented the Lynchburg League well!!
