The Desert Gems 7.0 women’s 65 and older team won the league and will go to sectionals on Friday, December 3 through Sunday, December 5. Since SaddleBrooke restricts court use to members only, the team was lucky to be able to use the Oro Valley courts as home base. The team played a total of nine matches winning seven, with 41 sets won and only 19 lost.

Sectionals take place at the El Conquistador courts. Hope we have a cheering squad from SaddleBrooke to cheer us to victory.

Captains are Kathy (KK) Kortus and Dagmar Hampton.

Congrats to all the members of the Desert Gems!
