Team Extreme, a women’s 4-0 combine playing out of Milford Indoor Tennis, advanced to the Nationals in Tucson, Ariz.
Jeff Gocke, managing partner and owner of Milford Indoor Tennis sponsored the team’s trip, and prior to leaving, the team was invited to have dinner at O’Shea American Grille in Bridgeport.
Out in Tucson, the team won its first match against the Southwest, 3-2, before eventual finalist Mid-Atlantic Virginia Beach edged the locals by a score of 3-2.
Team Extreme’s final match was played against Northern California, which went to their rivals, 4-1.
Sara Ramey played #1 singles and won all three of her matches.
Val Collison of Trumbull serves as the manager of Milford Indoor Tennis and has played on the team the last five years.
“We had great team spirit and support for each other both on and off the courts during the tournament,” she said.
“It was an amazing experience going to nationals and something I personally have been trying to make it to for the last fifteen-plus years.”
