Then off to Trinidad and Tobago to help Team USA reclaim the Gold Medal at the WDF America's Cup where she won the Ladies 501 Singles Title for the first time in her career. Then back to North Carolina last weekend for the QCDA Summer Shootout, commuting everyday where she won 4 events including Cricket Singles, so hanging out in our own backyard wasn't so bad for the weekend.
On Saturday, Sandy and her Greater Greenville Dart Girls teammates where at full strength for the first time in quite a while as they hosted the Spartanburg Ladies who were making their debut in the Ladies NC/SC Challenge Cup series which started in 1981. The local girls were great hosts and brought quite a nice spread of munchies for everyone to enjoy throughout the day. In the end Sandy and her teammates Amy Patterson, Gin Knight, Teresa Cepek, Candra Archbold, Nicole Roehr, Kim Carpenter, Tia and Haley Rogers were able to defend the Cup by the score of 21-3, in a match that was much closer than the final score would indicate.
On Sunday Sandy was on hand for the first ever Summer Slam tournament hosted by the SCUDL. She had a great day winning all 3 events she entered. First up she and SCUDL teammate Steve Eaton prevailed in a hard fought Mixed Doubles Combo event. Next she and Tia teamed up to finish first the Ladies Doubles Cricket and they would meet in the Finals of 501 Singles where Sandy won come out on top.
We get some time off now and vacation soon before getting back on the dart trail. Plenty of big events left on the calendar in the second half of the season including the Winmau World Masters in England and the Winmau 501 and Cricket National Championships in Myrtle Beach, SC. Sandy has been supported throughout her career by the most incredible sponsors anyone could ask for, thank you to the amazing people at Winmau, L-Style Global and Dutchman Darts for everything you do.
