2015 Girls Tennis State Tournament Recaps

Division I
The 40th annual OHSAA girls tennis state tournament concluded Saturday at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason. 2015 marked the first year for the tournament to be held at the Lindner Center, and good weather allowed the entire tournament to be played outdoors on Friday and Saturday.

In Division I singles, Emily Thomas (sophomore, Cincinnati Princeton) defeated Alexa Abele (senior, Cincinnati Sycamore) 6-1, 6-3 to earn Princeton’s first girls tennis singles state championship. Thomas was making her first appearance in the girls tennis state tournament. Alexa Abele finished third in last year’s state tournament.

Hudson junior Molly Sandberg was victorious in the consolation match against Cincinnati Mt. Notre Dame freshman Kelli Niehaus, winning 6-3, 6-2 to earn third place honors. Sandberg finished as singles state runner-up in 2014 and was a state quarterfinalist in 2013.

In Division I doubles, sisters Olivia Kompa (senior, Upper Arlington) and Paige Kompa (freshman, Upper Arlington) earned the sixth doubles state championship for Upper Arlington, defeating Powell Olentangy Liberty’s Anna Delaney (senior) and Alexis Steer (sophomore), 6-2, 6-0. Upper Arlington is tied for third for most girls tennis doubles state championships in OHSAA history. In 2014, Upper Arlington doubles pair Audrey Berger and Kyra Jung were Division I doubles state champions.

Upper Arlington’s Kyra Jung (junior) and Anna Reynolds (junior) finished third after winning the Division II doubles consolation match vs. Cincinnati Ursuline Academy’s Jenny Duma (senior) and Gabriella O’Connor (sophomore), 6-2, 1-6, 6-3. Duma and O’Connor earned fourth place honors.

 

Division II

The 40th annual OHSAA girls tennis state tournament concluded Saturday at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason. 2015 marked the first year for the tournament to be held at the Lindner Center, and good weather allowed the entire tournament to be played outdoors on Friday and Saturday.

In Division II singles, Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown junior Lauren Gillinov earned her second straight singles state championship, coming away victorious against Lodi Cloverleaf junior Emily Dunbar, 6-7 (8-6), 7-5, 6-0.
