    2nd Annual Sunrise Fall Classic Results

    By Reine Steel, 10/31/2017

    Sunrise Recreation and Park District continues to make a name for itself with its two highly successful annual tournaments. This year's fall tournament drew nearly 220 competitors, with many brackets filling up several weeks in advance.  Men's singles was offered for the first time in our area.  (Maybe women's singles will be next?) With so many different events, the start times had to be staggered throughout the day, with some matches continuing into the evening. What a wonderful sight to see our Rusch Park courts continuously filled with incredibly fun to watch, competitive matches, all weekend long!  We had several SPC members medal in their brackets. Congratulations to the following members for their clearly hard-fought victories!

    Lydia Brambila (with Cam Martin) won gold in Mixed Doubles 4.0/4.5 Overall
    Brian Guzman won silver in Mens Singles 3.5 A
    Michelle Daniels (with Kyle Daniels) won silver in Mixed Doubles 3.0 A
    Val Graden (with David Pelton) won bronze in Mixed Doubles 4.0/4.5 4.0 Group
