Michelle Fitzgerald tops tennis tourney

POIPU — Turkeys went to five people.

Michelle Fitzgerald earned two Sunday as division winner of the Kauai Charity Tennis Turkeyshoot at the Poipu Kai tennis courts.

John Morris and Loutoa Zoller, playing in the Division A flight, walked off with their birds Saturday after going undefeated in bracket play, defeating the team of Corley Ward and Michelle Fitzgerald, 6-3, 6-4 to open the action.

The Morris/Zoller duo advanced to get past the pair of Herb Noe and Sue Anderson in a tie-breaker, 6-1, 4-6 1-0(10-8).

The Ward and Michelle Fitzgerald pair later came back to hand the Noe/Anderson pairing its second defeat, 6-1, 6-4 to claim finalist honors which included Hydro Flask premiums.

Michelle Fitzgerald did not stop there, teaming with Adam Hadley in the B Division, to climb the four-flight ladder to her second turkey after beating out the team on which her daughter, Michaela Fitzgerald, an Island School student, played.

Alex Obert, another Island School student, teamed with Mitchell Evans to claim the C Division title following another three-setter, 3-6, 6-3, 1-0(10-7) over the pair of Gino Fordiani and Kris Wiser.

The Turkeyshoot hosted by the Kauai Charity Tennis with sponsorships from the Poipu Kai Association, the Kauai Tennis Association, and the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, benefited the Kauai United Way.
