Tennis team makes finals

The Bainbridge Athletic Club tennis team reached the finals of the 2007 USTA Adult League Pacific Northwest Section Tennis Championships in Portland, Ore. last weekend.

64 teams competed in various locations in the Portland area, such as the Mountain Park Racquet Club, West Hills Racquet and Fitness Club, Tualatin Hills Tennis Center and the Sunset Athletic Club.

The adult women’s 3.0 tennis team defeated Tri-City Country Club 3-2 on the first day, then beat Alaska Club-Anchorage 3-2 on the second day.

But in the finals, they lost to Valley Athletic Club of Olympia 5-0.

The team was made up of several players who competed in singles and doubles matches.

The BAC team made it to the sectional tournament by winning their league title.

The captain of the team was Susanne Furner.

BIYSC gives boot to bottle

The Bainbridge Island Youth Soccer Club is choosing a side on the debate between drinking tap versus bottled water.

The organization recently started a campaign to ask members to bring a refillable water bottle to games and practices and reduce their use of single use bottles.

BIYSC officials want to cut down on the litter of the bottles after their games and help the environment.

The decision comes at a time when the debate to drink from the tap or purchase bottled water at the store is growing larger.

Many restaurants around the country are choosing to serve tap water instead of making bottled water available.

Aquafina, the largest seller of bottled water, recently announced they get their water from public water sources instead of a special location.

San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order last month preventing city departments from purchasing bottled water to save taxpayers’ money and help the environment.

In New York City, the government recently started a campaign to get people to drink from the tap rather than buy bottled water.

According to the flyer the BIYSC is giving out, the bottled water industry is now doing $100 billion dollars in business every year.

To make the bottles, 1.5 million barrels of oil are used annually, enough to fuel 100,000 cars for a year.

For every one million bottles of water that are manufactured and shipped to consumers, 18.2 tons of carbon dioxide emissions are pumped into the air.
