FINAL RESULTS

The Lynmar Racquet & Health Club hosted over 100 athletes from across
the region for playoffs to qualify and seed players for the upcoming
USAR National Singles Championships. The coast-to-coast field included
players from California and New Hampshire, and division champions
earned points and positioning consideration for the 2004 national
event, which will be held in Houston, Texas at the end of May.

Springs enthusiasts fared well in the 28 divisions of the three-day
event, with eight division wins and thirteen runner-up finishes
recorded on Sunday. Two locals earned double gold, with John Vohland
winning the Men's 45+ and 50+ singles divisions, and Monument's Tony
Feldstein taking first place in Men's 40+ singles and the Mixed Open
doubles with partner Mary Keenan. Rachel Gellman, of Phoenix, Arizona
(currently ranked #16 on the women's pro tour) also earned a double
gold finish with wins in Women's Open and 30+.

Lynmar is the official training facility for the U.S. National Team,
and is scheduled to host the International Racquetball Federation
[IRF] World Doubles Championships in June, and the Rocky Mountain
State Games in July.
