Still Winning

— by on August 23rd, 2010

Ginny Wortham, of the Class of 2007 and a member of the Generals’ 2007 NCAA Division III national championship tennis team, is still competing and winning national championships.

Earlier this month Ginny teamed up with her mother, Lindsay, to capture two titles at the USTA Mother/Daughter Grass Court Championships in Newport, R.I.

The Worthams won both the senior and open divisions. In the latter, they were unbeaten in five matches of a round robin event, rallying from a 1-6 defeat in the third match to win and finish unbeaten.

Ginny is the two-time defending Richmond city champion but needs another title to match her mother, who won three championships.

In a story in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Ginny gave her mother much of the credit: “I don’t think there’s any question about it,” she said. “We won because I had the best mom. Some of the other girls were really good — a couple of them are Division I players — but their moms were weaker, which meant there was always a target for us to hit to.”
