A happy return

Marini defends his 18-under singles title at Taco Bell tourney

One year ago, Mark Marini found out about the Taco Bell Western Slope Open tennis tournament at the last minute and he entered and ended up winning the boys 18-under singles title.
Marini, 18, came back to Grand Junction this summer and defended his title, defeating Aaron Gossage 5-7, 6-1, (10-7) in the final Wednesday at the Elliott Tennis Center at Colorado Mesa University.
“For me, it was a better match than last year (in the finals),” Marini said. “It was tight the whole way.”
