The Varsity Girls Tennis teams finish runner-ups in the DecoTurf High School Championship, Friday and Saturday, March 15-16.
The Lady Bears made a run back to the Championship for a second year in a row coming up short 4-5 in an epic battle of grit, determination and class. Top teams from all over the country compete in college style competition, 3 lines of doubles and 6 lines of singles).
The Lady Bears fought in the top bracket dropping only 2 lines on the way to the championship. Lady Bears won 8-1 against a tough first round opponent from Florida only to take down hometown rival Lambert High School 8-1 in the Semifinals.
The Lady Bears would battle in the finals through the toughest match to date. Bears came out fighting in doubles with lines 1 and 2 falling and 3 securing their point. All 6 lines hit the courts at once fighting hard with everything they had coming up a little short. We could not be more proud of how our our Lady Bears competed and behaved on and off the court this weekend!!
Congratulations on your well earned National Championship Runner Up!
Lady Bears would like to thanks their parents and all the Bears players and families who stayed to cheer them on after their matches earlier in the day! #allinallthetime
