Just like in 2011 and in 2010, Sheri Shea and Juan Arraya dominated the Connecticut State Mixed and won the tournament without dropping a set. Their feat was not an easy one. Why? Because the Open draw probably was the strongest draw in years. The #1 and #2 women in the nation did not make it passed the quarter finals.
Sheri and Juan defeated the #2 seeded team of Susan Lovejoy and Sebastian Bredberg in two close sets. The final score of 6-4, 6-4 reflects how the 3-time champions did not have it easy but were still able to pull through a tough win.
Arraya also organized the tournament for third year in a row. After losing to Shea-Arraya in the quarters with partner paddle ace Varun Vasudeva, multiple National Champion Connie Jones said:
Congrats on running it and winning it also, not an easy task.”
