Area Distributors Area Player of the Week: Palmyra’s Rindom, Gottman win district title
Palmyra’s No. 1 doubles team of Katy Rindom and Maura Gottman drew a unique draw as the No. 1 seed in the Class 1 District 8 individual tournament. Their teammates — Palmyra’s No. 2 doubles team of Molly Gottman and Jaynee Durst — were seeded second and on the other side of the bracket.
They ended up meeting in the middle.
Rindom and Gottman beat Moberly’s Teagan Smith and Sam Carl 6-2, 6-0 in the opening match and knocked off Mexico’s Lily Yager and Winona Whelan 6-1, 6-0 in the semifinals. That set up the all-Palmyra showdown in the title match. Rindom and Maura Gottman picked up the 6-4, 6-2 victory, winning the district title and advancing to Saturday’s sectional.
The championship earned Rindom and Gottman the Area Distributors Area Player of the Week honor.
