SPRINGFIELD, MO - The Washington Kastles rewrote sports history Saturday night by completing an unprecedented second consecutive undefeated World TeamTennis regular season with a 25-14 Overtime victory over the Springfield Lasers.
It was the 30th consecutive win for the Kastles, who captured the 2011 WTT title with a 16-0 record. The Kastles won all 14 regular season matches this summer and will try to continue their win streak in the WTT Finals Weekend presented by GEICO, Sept. 14-16, at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, S.C. Washington is the top overall seed and is scheduled to face the New York Sportimes in the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 6:30pm EDT.
