Tracey (L) at Nationals with teammate Ruby HudnallRichland Tennis Center's 3.5 women's team, captained by Tracey Driver, recently played in the 2012 USTA League 3.5 Senior National Championships. They didn't win, but they started well and had fun.

Here's what Driver, 54, had to say via Facebook message about the tournament, in which her team won its first two matches but fell short the next day.

"I'm sad to say we lost it [the match to move forward] 2-1," she said. "All three lines went down to third-set tiebreakers. They all ended 10-8. It was so close.

"We had a blast, though, and played lots of tennis and really enjoyed the time we were there."
