Division I
The OHSAA Girls Tennis State Tournament concluded at Elysium Tennis Center in Plain City, Ohio for the third-consecutive year. Four new state champions were crowned and one player earned her school’s first OHSAA Girls Tennis Singles State Championship.

Hamilton High School senior Cassidy Hicks became Hamilton’s first girls tennis player to win a singles state championship after defeating 2013 state tournament qualifier Molly Sandberg (Sophomore, Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit), 6-3, 6-1 in the Division I singles state championship match. Hicks won all of her state tournament matches in two games. Cincinnati Sycamore junior Alexa Abele captured third place honors with a 6-0, 7-6 (8-6) victory against Massillon Jackson senior Tessa Hill.

Upper Arlington doubles pair Audrey Berger (senior) and Kyra Jung (sophomore) captured the fifth girls tennis doubles state championship for Upper Arlington and its first since 2003 with a 6-3, 6-4 state finals victory. Pickerington Central doubles pair Kyah Thomas (senior) and Isis Thomas (senior) were earned state-runner up honors. Toledo Notre Dame Academy’s Teagan McNamara (senior) and Alicia Nahhas (junior) claimed third place with a consolation match victory of 6-4, 7-5 vs. Dublin Jerome’s Victoria Chang (freshman) and Rhiannon James (senior).
