♠ ♥ Sally Young (1906 - 1970) ♦ ♣
Sally Young was Life Master #17, the first woman to earn Life Master status and a top competitor in open and women’s events. She is the only woman to win the Reisinger B-A-M Teams three consecutive years. Young teamed with John Crawford, Charles Goren and Charles Solomon to win the event in 1937 and 1938. The quartet added B. Jay Becker and won again in 1939.
Young also won the Reisinger in 1947 with teammates Jane Jaeger, Kay Rhodes and Paula Ribner — they remain the only all-women’s team ever to win a major open team championship.
Young — short, freckle-faced, her blue eyes usually hidden by her trademark sunglasses — and Helen Sobel Smith won the Women’s Pairs in 1938 and 1939. The two led the 1938 field by such a large margin that Oswald Jacoby commented they had nearly come over into the Men’s Pairs section and walked off with that, too.
Young set a record between 1937 and 1958 by winning the Women’s Teams seven times — including four consecutive years: 1943, 1944, 1945 and 1946 with teammates Emily Folline, Smith and Margaret Wagar — and finishing second three times.
