The High School Tennis Team played the TAPPS rivals Tyler All Saints at Corsicana High School Wednesday night. It was a match-up of State Championship teams, with All Saints having won the 4A State title and Vanguard winning the 3A title in the spring. The Vikings came out strong in doubles winning all but one match. Zach Henry/Aldo Ibarra, Hyrum/Seth Blackwelder, Evan Roos/Luke Williams, Aubrey Carroll/Karissa Kuhl, Grace Yoon/Karoline Horner, and Zach Henry/Aubrey Carroll won in doubles. Singles had some battle with two of the matches going into super tie-breakers. On the girls’ side, wins were scored by Aubrey Carroll who defeated Lauren Kilblinger, State 4A singles champion; Karissa Kuhl who defeated Millie McGeehee, State 4A doubles second place; and McKenna Lowrey, Avery Haynes, and Karoline Horner, who only dropped 4 games between the three of them. On the boys’ side, wins were scored by Zach who defeated Cullen Walker, State 4A doubles second place, Hyrum, Seth, Carter, and Holland Evans, who played in his debut in a Varsity match.
