The Lady Tigers are DISTRICT 7 LARGE CHAMPIONS!!!
It was a tough fight with a trip to Regionals and the quest to State on the line during the District Team Final on Tuesday night.
Singles was first, with three Tigers finishing quickly (Macy Speight, Mamie Sevier & Sally Smith) to make the score 3-0. The remaining Tigers (Jessie Thepsouvan and Molly Speight) were in a fight for their lives, both going three sets and both ending up on the losing end. So we had to go to doubles.
#2 Doubles finished first, unfortunately ending in a third loss for the Tigers. Score is 3-3.
#1 Doubles (Speight/Speight) were up 8-7 in the proset when the other doubles ended. They had two match points, but the Blackman team evened it at 8-8. They went to a tiebreaker.
There were lots of cheers from the 100 or so fans that stayed into the evening for this deciding match. In the end, Speight/Speight prevailed with a 7-4 WIN in the tiebreaker!
