LOCUST VALLEY, N.Y. - In a nail-biting weekend, the USA women were narrowly defeated in the Gengler Cup, and the men came out on top against the Canadian IC at Piping Rock Club on June 15-17. 

In the Gengler Cup, American and Canadian teams fought it out on the grass to a 6-6 finish. In a rollercoaster competition, the Canadians led 5-1 at the end of Saturday. However Team USA battled back on Sunday, this time finishing the day 5-1 in their favor. As a result of the 6-6 tie, the outcome was decided by total sets won, which tipped the scales in favor of team Canada. 

The late Jeanne Logan Gengler, for whom the Gengler Cup was named, would have smiled upon her four daughters and two grandchildren who cheered on and participated in the Gengler Cup. The Gengler family was represented by team captain Louise Gengler Thomas and Jeanne Swiacki, both of whom played, while Nancy Gengler Saint and Marion Gengler Melton were cheering from the sidelines. Granddaughter Austin Smith, daughter of fifth sister Margie Gengler Smith, and great-grandson Tatum represented three generations present. 

Team USA was also represented by Gretchen Biggs, Margaret Cooper, Lisa Evans, Lisa Hoffstein, Connie Jones, Wendy Nolan, Simmy Pell, Jackie Powers, Anne Prosser, Norma Taylor and Akiko Tohmatsu.
