Atlanta Invitational

Yesterday was the final day of the Atlanta Senior Invitational CAT II tournament. I did not play in it, but some familiar names did … with some surprising results!

While Larry Turville was able to pull off a sweep in 65 singles and doubles, my question is: who is Emile Rasheed, who dumped Drilling in the 70 singles semi’s and Don Long in the finals?
