HPD Women's Teams Wind Up a Winning First-Half Season

The women of Hinsdale Paddle are on their way up! All 4 women's teams had stellar first half performances. The Series 1 team, captained by Holly Tritt and Mary Doten, finished the fall season in 1st place. This is the first season for this team. They are hoping that this will stop the question, "and now, where is Hinsdale exactly?"
After a rocky start, the Series 5 team, captained by Margaret Hawn, rebounded and took 2nd place. Their hard work and determination paid off as they will head up to Series 4 in January.
Continuing the success story is the Series 9 women, captained by Cathleen Robinson. They played Five Seasons, the 1st place team, to a tie but otherwise tore up the league. They are looking forward to the competition of Series 8 in January.
Lastly, the Series 12 women, captained by Kathleen Mulligan, are on their way up. While the league granted our petition to jump to Series 10, these women will not stop there. This team is loaded with solid competitors who are doing Hinsdale proud.
