68th USHA National Three-Wall Championships - Three-Wall Nationals

 

MAUMEE, Ohio -- It's getting crowded at the top of the all-time list for Three-Wall Nationals titles.  On a September Sunday morning, Sean Lenning tied Vince Munoz by winning his tenth singles crown, defeating Daniel Cordova, 21-15, 21-2. 

This year's final was vintage Lenning:  shoot out to a big lead, then demoralize opponents with serves.  In the first game, Lenning strung out a strong 15-1 lead before Cordova could answer.  Cordova went on a 15-6 run, but couldn't secure game point.  The second game started the same way, but this time Cordova didn't answer.  Lenning continued to pile on points until he reached match point for this 10th title. 

The joy was short-lived as the Cordovas ousted defending champions Marcos Chavez and Lenning in doubles later the same afternoon.  The Cordovas play the Szatkowski brothers in an all-sibling final.  The doubles final will be played at 9 a.m. local time. 

In Women's action, Hillary Rushe looks to complete the three-peat bid in the Women's Open.  She'll face University of Texas' Kristen Hughes in tomorrow's final.
