MONROE - The last time someone other than Al Schroeder won the city singles tournament, the Steelers were Super Bowl champions, George W. Bush was president and the movie "Cars" was a smash-hit at the box office. Schroeder's streak of seven straight singles championships came to an end Sunday when he elected not to play in the 42nd annual Park and Recreation Class A city singles tournament. Joe Soddy, a 2004 Monroe graduate, won the class A men's title by knocking off Kevin Monahan 6-1, 6-4 Sunday, June 23 at Rec Park.
