TEAM USA AT THE

PARAPAN AMERICAN GAMES

ADVERTISEMENT

The red, white and blue flew proudly in Lima, Peru at the 2019 Parapan American Games. 

 

Each member of the six-player contingent from Team USA came home with at least one medal, giving the US the most hardware overall in the tennis event. 

 

American No. 1 Dana Mathewson took home a team-best two on the women's side. Mathewson and Emmy Kaiser took home gold in women’s doubles after beating the Colombian team of Angelica Bernal and Johana Martinez 6-3, 7-5, in the final match.

 

The San Diego native also bested her doubles partner 6-3, 7-5, to win the bronze in singles.

 

"I'd never been to a Parapan Games before, so I didn't really have expectations for myself," Mathewson said. "To come away with two medals, and much less a gold one, is really exciting and gives you a lot of confidence."

 

Adding to the haul of medals was Bryan Barten, Chris Herman, Casey Ratzlaff and David Wagner. ADVERTISEMENT Wagner and Barten won the silver and bronze, respectively, in the men's quad singles, while Herman and Ratzlaff won the silver in men's doubles.
