Despite an eleventh-hour push in Thursday singles, the West team reclaimed the Wyndham Cup July 18 at The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe near San Diego over the East team. The West squad, made up of 10 boys and 10 girls, held off the East to win the cup for the first time since 2010.

The visiting East team rallied on Day 3, winning 14 of 20 points in singles matches, but still fell five points short. Singles proved to be the winning West team’s weakness. The West led 21.5 to 8.5 after the first two days, which includes two sessions each of foursomes and four-balls.

The West got crucial singles victories from Andrea Lee, Brooke McDougald, Krystal Quihuis, Lilia Vu and Alison Lee. Vu’s match was the most lop-sided – she defeated Shawn Rennergarbe, 6 and 5.

“I didn’t even know it was dormie,” Vu said. “I only realized [what it meant] when Rachel, Hannah, Jacob and Brooke ran down and hugged me. I was relieved and overwhelmed, but happy that I did it for my team.”

The West’s all-time record becomes 13-9-2, compared to the East’s 9-13-2 record.
