In No.1 girls doubles action, Brooke Powell and Taylar Swartzbaugh dropped a three set decision to the home team in the finals. In their first match they beat McAlester in three sets 1-6, 7-6, 8-6 and in their next match they defeated the No. 2 seeded Ponca City 6-2, 7-6.

“This was their first tournament to make it to the finals, so I was very proud of them,” head coach Mary Hudson said, who grew up playing basketball and tennis in Bartlesville and in her senior year was named to the All-State tennis team.

In singles action, Heidi Kuruvilla lost her first match to the top seed from Owasso 6-0, 6-0 before losing her second match in a close three set match to Ponca City. Despite winning her third match, she had to default due to an injury.

In No. 2 singles, Cheyenne Royal went the max in all three of her matches, but was unable to pull out a win. She dropped her first match to Muskogee, her second match to Sand Springs, and in her final match she lost to Ponca City.

For the BlueJays it was the doubles team of Andy Hartley and Josh Wehrenberg that placed second. In their first round they defeated Sand Springs 6-0, 6-0, in the second round they beat Ponca City 6-4, 6-3 and in their final round they lost to Bartlesville 6-4, 6-2.
