You gotta hand it to Sue Prudhomme and Gordy Ward, especially when it’s time to give out gold medals in the NW La. District Senior Olympics mixed doubles tennis competition.

Prudhomme-Ward had some difficulty in their opening match with Tom and Patti Guanella, winning 7-5, 6-4. Then they scored routine wins over Sally and Rick Namie and Linda Dunn and Kenny Carter by identical scores of 6-2, 6-2, to end the round robin unbeaten and repeat as gold medalists. Namie-Namie bested Dunn-Carter 6-4, 6-4, and Guanella-Guanella 6-1, 6-3 and wound up with the silver medals.  Dunn-Carter scored a 6-3, 6-1 verdict over Guanella-Guanella to claim the bronze medals.

Competition was held at Bossier Tennis Center.


Sue Prudhomme-Gordy Ward d. Patti and Tom Guanella 7-5, 6-4; Sally Namie-Rick Namie d. Linda Dunn-Kenny Carter 6-4, 6-4; Prudhomme-Ward d. Namie-Namie 6-2, 6-2; Prudhomme-Ward d. Dunn-Carter 6-2, 6-2; Namie-Namie d. Guanella-Guanella 6-1, 6-3. Carter-Dnn d. Guanella-Guanela 6-3, 6-1.
