Garcia, Livingston take Sacramento Clay Court title
Garcia and the 32-year-old Livingston -- who played at UC Davis and USC, respectively -- split $1,000. They played on opposing teams in last year's final as Garcia and Jeff Shin beat Scott Colby and Livingston 6-4, 6-4.
Roberson and Schnack, who lost together in the first round of mixed doubles in the 2013 U.S. Open, shared $500. Schnack, 27, helped UCLA win the NCAA title as a sophomore in 2008 and was named the Pacific-12 Conference Player of the Year in 2010. Roberson, 29, played at Boise State.
Earlier Sunday, Bryan Paveglio and Chris Potthast beat Chris Evers and Dave Hagiwara 6-4, 6-4 for the 40-and-over title. Paveglio and Potthast divided $500, and Evers and Hagiwara split $250.
Laura McGaffigan and Bella Norton won the 9.0 division to collect $100 each.
The matches were played at the Orangevale home of Ben Combs, a former owner of the now-defunct Sacramento Capitals in World TeamTennis. He owns one of the few clay courts in the Sacramento area.
