With 1870 women playing on 201 teams in 14 divisions, the LCWTL season was another success in a perennial string of successful seasons. The change to a match-tiebreak for all matches for the first time didn't appear to detract from match-play and led to some exciting finishes.
Below is a recap of how the various divisions culminated, including the teams claiming the top three positions in each division as well as which team(s) won the Sportsmanship Award. Photos are included where possible (thanks to those who sent me pics).
The Landings, with Corinne Howey and Connie Sanville at the helm, finished third in the standings.

You may have noticed that the top rated divisions in both the rated and senior categories have no sportsmanship awards. I'm not sure what that means, but you are welcome to speculate...
I hope you all had a good season and are looking forward to 2013-14. Congratulations to all those who participated, to the Sportsmanship Award Winners and the Division Winners.
