Finals berths to Nationals up for grabs this weekend
The women are playing in a bracketed event to award the six spots. One upset occurred in the opening round as 2011 Club Nationals champion Janice Langanke (Middletown, N.J.) defeated 2010 Olympian and nine-time U.S. champion Allison Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.), 6-5. That dropped Pottinger's team to a lower bracket in the triple knockout format. 2006 Olympian Cassie Potter (St. Paul, Minn.) picked up a first-round win to be within one victory of claiming a spot at Nationals.
