To cap off their record-breaking season, the Washington Kastles became just the second team in history* to three-peat at the Mylan World TeamTennis Championships Sunday evening.
The Kastles feted their fourth MTT King Trophy in five years after defeating the Springfield Lasers, 25 -12, in front of a sold out home crowd at Kastles Stadium at The Wharf.
In addition to the win, the Kastles made history with the largest margin of victory by a winning team in the title match (since the league switched to a first to five games format in 1999) and became the first franchise (since the implementation of this format) to take all five sets in the Finals.
“It’s been an unforgettable season for our franchise,” said Kastles owner Mark Ein. “We broke a 41-year-old winning streak record to start it off, then captured the our fourth King Trophy to finish it. Our results on and off the court continue to amaze me, and I’m already looking forward to 2014.”
*The Sacramento Capitals won a record four straight titles from 1997-2000
