Tennis team places second

A women's adult team from the Southern Oregon Tennis Club placed second at the Pacific Northwest Sectionals in Portland last weekend.

Competing in the 3.0 category, the team, known as the Hot Tamales, defeated opponents from northern Oregon and Washington state before losing to a Washington team in the finals.

The Hot Tamales defeated teams representing Salishan and the Rogue Valley Swim and Tennis Club in July in Salem to earn their ticket to Portland.

Marlene Henselman and Valerie Wright were co-captains. Other team members were Connie Davis-Young, MariAnn Chaney, Jackie LeBrun, Carolyn Piatt, Barbara Sowell, Sue Sullivan and Alice White-Hoppe.

At the conclusion of each match, the team gave Hot Tamales candy to their opponents as a memento.
