Schwicker wins national tennis tournament

Local tennis pro Dale Schwicker, who directs the tennis program at Wyndham Vacation Resort, recently won the Category II National Senior Tournament at Lakeway World of Tennis near Austin, Texas.

He won the 70 Singles Division by defeating Richard Anderson of Houston in a tight three-set match 6-3, 2-6, 6-1. Anderson is the number-one 70s player in Texas and is 10th in the national rankings.

Schwicker entered the tournament unseeded and beat three nationally-ranked players on his way to the finals.

In the doubles, Schwicker teamed with Karl F. Kamrath, Jr. of Vail. They were defeated in the finals by Courtney Henderson and Lee Hamilton, who are the 12th-ranked 70s team in the U.S.
