The Xperience Tennis tournament was a wonderful event this year. There were four athletes that went and they were: Brian Buker, Ruth, Kara, and Kristine. All the athletes competed well. Ruth after fighting off a pulled or strained muscle, came away with a Silver Medal. Kara had a tough battle in her division and finished 4th, while Brian also had a tough match for the gold but walked away with Silver. Kristine had a good start to the tournament but was unable to complete the medal round as well as two matches during seeding, because of a strained Achilles tendon. Saturday night was the big dinner, dance/Karaoke night. I heard that Brian sang Karaoke for the first time and had fun. Also Kara dance and sang the night away as well. For the dinner part of the night, we had the most wonderful barbecue that I have ever tasted. All athletes from around the country and Switzerland stayed at the wonderful Boars Head Inn Resort were the tournament was held.
