A fun group from our area traveled to Lewiston, Idaho, last week and had a great time at the Lewis-Clark Idaho Sr. Games.
Players from Idaho, Washington, and Oregon competed in the largest draw since the tourney’s inception.
A major highlight was playing on the brand new 6 courts dedicated solely to pickleball in the beautiful Sunset Park overlooking the city. The courts are also lighted, so people especially enjoy early evening play there with the sun setting in the West… and, then, continuing on into evening play under the lights.
Treasure Valley medalists were:
Susie Christie & Laurie Janssen — Silver, 50-54 Women’s Doubles
Donna Bogdan & Mary Tomlinson — Gold, 70-74 Women’s Doubles
Scott Christie & Susie Christie — Silver, 50-54 Mixed Doubles
Al Hutchins & Donna Bogdan — Bronze, 70-74 Mixed Doubles
Dick Johnson — Gold, 70-79 Men’s Singles
Dick Johnson & Gary Robbins (both 75) — Gold, 70-74 Men’s Doubles
Dick Johnson & SunnyLynne Gray — Gold, 70-74 Mixed Doubles
(Afterwards, Dick & SunnyLynne challenged the winners of the 65-69 Mixed Doubles pool and beat them in 2 straight games)
A special thanks to Lawana Johnson for providing results and great pictures!
