Bringing The Heat: Reynolds Tennis Receive State Titles

Written by Brianna McCormack

 “Our community in the past has been known nationally as the golf haven of the southeast. But what they may not know is how advanced our tennis courts, facilities, and training is at Reynolds,” states Dave Neuhart, Director of Tennis at Reynolds. “With assistance from our staff, members of our Georgia community have worked hard throughout the past year to advance their tennis skills, which was clearly shown at recent tournaments through the state.” 

During last week’s USTA State Competition, the following Lake Oconee Tennis Association (LOTA) teams earned spots to compete in the USTA Sectional Tournament that will take place later this year:

Mixed 40 and Over Team – Rick Cook (captain), Roger Fields (coach), Deb Agran, Tammy Beatty, Todd Ciavola, Laurie Cicco, Cindy Jones, Ron Kalpak, Julie King, Jennifer Mercer, and Bob Sanders.

Men’s Tri-Level 55 and Over Team – Larry Kludt (captain), Rick Cook, Roger Fields, Norm Field, Rick Henson, Steve Peluso, Bob Sanders, Dick Settles, Cliff Sheppard and Mark Watkins.

Back in June, our Reynolds LOTA Adult 55 and over Men’s Team brought home a second place finish in the State Championship.  Members of this team included, Mark Watkins (captain), Rick Cook, Mark Engel, Roger Fields, Ron Jeitz, Ed Sowell and Wes Wetherington.  Other members that performed extraordinarily well at the State Championship Tournament were Karen Bernardy, Brenda Bray, Fatima Fields, Debbie Ivey, Sharon Ouzts, Nancy Sanders, Tammy Smith, and Lillian Stratton.

 “I couldn’t be more excited to see Reynolds residents not only enjoy the game of tennis as much as I do, but also competing and winning titles,” says Neuhart. 

From all of us at Reynolds, we would like to congratulate and wish the best of luck to all of the members who have participated and advanced in recent tournaments.
