Warrior girls 3rd in state team tennis

IOWA CITY - The Washington girls tennis team shrugged off the disappointment of losing its semifinals match and shutout West Des Moines Valley, 5-0, Saturday for third place in the Class 2A girls state tennis team tournament.

The Warriors were beaten by Iowa City West, 5-2, in Saturday morning's semifinals. Kristin King and Olivia Brooks took their No. 2 and 3 singles matches for Washington's wins. Katie Hammond, who finished third in the individual singles championships completed Friday, was beaten by West's Lola White-Baer, 6-2, 6-3, at No. 1 singles. White-Baer and Lilli Oetting finished second in doubles. The Warriors' King beat Oetting in singles Saturday.

Hammond bounced back and dispatched Valley's Jenni Aldrich, 6-2, 6-1, to fuel the Warriors in the third-place meet. King, Brooks, Rina Moore and Lanie Sabin also won.

Hammond finished her junior season with a 20-5 singles mark. She also is a member of the Washington girls soccer team that plays Linn-Mar on Monday at Kingston Stadium in the regional final for a state tournament berth.

Valley was beaten by Ames, 5-1, in the semifinals.

Ames beat Iowa City West, 5-1, for its third straight team title.

Waterloo Columbus beat Dubuque Wahlert, 5-3, in the 1A championship at Waterloo. It is Columbus' 14th state team title.
