Update:

So it has happened again "The Alaska Triple Crown" or whatever you want to call it, The feat of winning all three Open Doubles State Titles is so very hard to accomplish that it had only been done one time before by Brandon Cuaresma and now his long-time partner has done it Jesse Keaveny went 3 for 3 in the finals with three different partners, Men's Open with Brandon Cuaresma, Men's All Age with Robby Gunther, and Mixed with Gina Phillips-Strawn all three matches went to tie-breakers which makes this even more sensational. In the Women's Open Terri Marconi & Cathy Law went 3 for 3 of their own, not even losing a game on their way to the 2017 Alaska Women's Open Title. Congratulations to all the players and Thank You to all our sponsors. See you all in February for "The Alaska Open".

We had to combine Men's  A's with B's and with only two Women playing singles we had to place them in there also  just so they would have a division to play in.  There were only 2 Elite entries so they were mixed into the Men's Open. The tournament will end on Saturday instead of Sunday now.
