The Wilson Hope Racquetball Tournament was a great success for the local Bellingham Cancer Center! Olivia Nicholes and Wanda Collins put together a fundraiser that netted a little over $900 for the new center. Thanks go out to Lori and Keith Turley for their volunteer time to help run the desk and record scores. And a big thanks to Wilson Racquetball for donating a lot of great door prizes that were given out during the event.
Players from British Columbia and the Seattle area joined BAC players in a full day of racquetball play. In Men’s Open Singles, players were competing for a free entry in the Northwest Open Racquetball tournament. Vince Kiteley of Everett took home the free entry pass, while Favian Elmore finished second in a tiebreaker match with Kiteley, to win half his entry cost to the Open in March.
First place finishers in other singles divisions were:
Les Powers in Men’s A
Viron Elmore of Stanwood in Men’s B
Wanda Collins in Women’s Open/Elite
Kelli Holz of Lynden in Women’s A/B
Rhonda McInturff of Bellingham in Women’s C.
In the Mixed Doubles events, Diana Hambley of Abbotsford, B.C. teamed up with Favian Elmore of Everett to claim first, while Favian’s dad, Viron Elmore, and his partner Rhonda McInturff took first in Mixed A/B Doubles.
Thanks to everyone who participated! We hope to see you at next year’s event.
