Last week, I was fortunate enough to participate in four events at the 2019 US Open Pickleball Championships in Naples, Florida, and walked away with a gold medal in the Women’s Doubles 5.0 19+ event with my partner, Anna Leigh Waters, and a bronze medal in the Mixed Doubles 4.5 19+ event with my partner, Seth Muse (also, big shoutouts to my talented partner, Rachel Oxenden, in the Women's Age 30+ event and my talented partner, Jeronimo Simonovis-Armas, in the Mixed Age 25+ event).
