Xavier twins, Jasper in state semifinals

Xavier's twin sister duo of Claire and Jeanne Bouchard, along with teammate Allison Jasper, advanced to the semifinals on Thursday in Class 1A state girls tennis tournament at Ankeny.

The Bouchards had a tough road to the semifinals. In the first round, they needed a first-set tiebreaker win before pulling away in the second set to win 7-6, 6-1 over Creston/Orient Macksburg's Caitlin McIlravy and Sydney Dunphy.

Three sets were needed for the twins to advance through the quarterfinals against Ryan Petievich and Hanna Schoning of Spirit Lake/Okoboji. The Bouchards prevailed, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.

They will meet Red Oak's Micayla Taylor and Grace Blomstedt in a 10 a.m. semifinal match.

Jasper, the No. 3 seed, had a much easier time advancing to the semifinals. She lost just three games in wins over Osage's Amber Schwarting (6-0, 6-0) and Haley Schneiderman of Aplington-Parkersburg (6-1, 6-2).

Jasper's semifinal opponent will be No. 2 seed Kate Walker of Red Oak on Friday at 10 a.m.

In the 2A tournament on the University of Iowa's courts in Iowa City, Washington's doubles team of Lilly Hartman and Hannah Sherman will be in the semifinals.

The Warrior pair defeated Megan Jans and Abby Jans of Iowa City West, 6-0, 6-1, in the quarterfinals after downing Becky Hughes/Ariana Mitra of Cedar Falls, 6-1, 6-2, in the first round.

They will play Urbandale's Abby Reis and Brynn Reichardt in a 10 a.m. semifinal match on Friday.

The only Metro player to stay alive in consolation play was Prairie's Vale Caro, who won a pair of matches after losing her opening-round match to Becca Aleynik, Sioux City North.

Caro will play again on Friday. The best she can finish is fifth place.
