Hats off to Tony Franco for sweeping all eight (eight!) gold balls in the 90s ─ four singles plus four doubles with longtime partner Grady Nichols.
Joe Russell copped 7 of 8 in the 85s ─ four singles and three doubles, missing out only on the grass doubles.
Brian Cheney won the first three 65 singles but turned up injured in the year-end clay in New Orleans.
Notable also was what did not occur ─ namely Jimmy Parker, tied at 124 with Mulloy, overtaking Bob Sherman (125) for the most national championships won. Parker and Ken Robinson posted a convincing semi-final win at the Houston Indoors (Corley/Stewart) before being blown out in the final (Johnson/Rush) with Parker remaining inactive for the remainder of the year ─ aside, that is, from a July knee replacement.
