The 7th annual Maryland Senior Olympics Croquet Tournament was hosted by West River Wickets and Ginger Cove Croquet Club (Annapolis). Thirty-two players from Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, New York (Rochester) and Florida competed for gold, silver and bronze on lawns in West River, Edgewater and Ginger Cove Annapolis. 


Rochester (New York) Croquet Club dominated the A flight. Rich Laging and Sue Sherer beat Suzanne Laging and Lee Jorde (West River Wickets) in the A final (photo). Byron Lee (Ginger Cove and WRW) was a bronze medalist. 


Ginger Cove players Frankie Hall (also a WRW member) and Richard Murchake beat Linda Orff (West River Wickets) and Peter Sherer (Rochester) in Flight B. The bronze medallists were Bobby Pittman and Susan Koepp, both West River Wickets players. A huge pat on the back for silver medallist Linda Orff who only started playing in June this year. Susan Koepp (bronze) joined WRW in May 2018.
