In other action Friday, Lance Ellis of Englewood and Andrea Hatcher of Denver won the co-ed A division final with a win over Jonny Chan and Kelli MacFarland of Denver.
The main draw of the tournament gets underway today with the men’s and women’s open division beginning play at Koch Lumber Park. The A, BB and B divisions also begin play at grass parks around Aspen.
Today’s only final is in the men’s 37-andover master’s division, scheduled to start around noon at Koch Lumber Park.
