Bonnie makes National semis
With a report from St. John's here's SDA President Pat Copeman:
"Bonnie Lapierre was joint 3rd in the Ladies Singles event at the 2013 Nationals in St. John's Newfoundland. Bonnie and her partner Georgina Ratt also made it to the knockout round of the Ladies' Doubles event.
"Joan Hodgen and Karsten Larsen advanced to the knockout round in the Mixed Doubles event. While our other teams did not advance to the knockout round the number of matches won increased over last year's results which resulted in Saskatchewan finishing 8th in the Canada Cup standings - two positions up from last year."
