Buckeyes Tie El Cerrito Club

On February 23 the BALL match between the Rossmoor Buckeyes and the El Cerrito Club
was as close as the scores indicate with both teams playing excellent tennis and battling hard.
It was a strange morning of tennis with several of the scores looking like mirror images of each
other and ending in a tie.
In Line one, Carol Pillsbury and Terry Quinlan battled valiantly but lost 4 - 6, 2 - 6. Line two
was very hard-fought and happily ended with Eileen Plotkin and Gery Yearout winning in the 10-
point tiebreaker after splitting sets. In Line three, Anna George and Dorothy Watkin had a huge
win which mirrored the scores in Line 1. They won 6 - 4, 6 - 2. In Line four, Nelly Sawczuk and
Joan Gardner lost in the 10-point tiebreaker after splitting sets 4 - 6, 7 - 5.
Team captain Barbara Blum and the team thank Barbara Schwartz for arranging the
refreshments and expressed appreciation for the strong play on both sides of the net.

Buckeye's Fall to Walnut Creek

Rossmoor Tennis Club Buckeyes Senior B-2 team faced Walnut Creek Seniors in the Bay Area Ladies League (BALL) match on Monday January 20, at the home courts.   2020 01 20 Buckeyematch Small

The Buckeyes put together a strong team against Walnut Creek but Walnut Creek prevailed.
Team 2 Eileen Plotkin and Margaret Logwood split sets and lost in a very close tiebreak.  Team 3 Micki Remedios and Nelly Sawczuk also split sets but won in another close tiebreak.

Teams 1 and 4, Terry Quinlan/Carol Pillsbury and Mary Hickey/Trudy Tuan, both lost but fought hard and had many very close games.

The scores weren’t always close but they did not reflect the good competitive play, with many deuces. Despite the loss everyone agreed that it was a fun day of good challenging tennis.V
