Five Lady Braves qualify for State Tennis Finals

Five Braves tennis players advanced to at least the semi-finals of the Districts and qualified to compete at the OHSAA State Tennis Championships to be held 10/20 and 10/21 at the Western & Southern ATP Tennis Center. Gracey Hirsch and Hayley Hirsch tore through the competition to claim their second consecutive District Double Championship. Julia Yingling, Nina Price and Samantha Pregel all had impressive 3rd place finishes and will accompany the Hirsch sisters at State this weekend.

Last week in dual matches, IHHS improved to a 15-4 record with wins over Chaminade-Julienne and Summit to claim the Southwest District Team Tournament title. These wins were significant because it advanced our varsity tennis team to the Final 4 of the State Team Championship to be held on Sunday, 10/22 in Reynoldsburg, Ohio for the 4th time in the last 5 years. On 10/22, the State's #2 ranked Braves will battle the two-time defending State Champion Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown. Our team will count on great efforts of all eight of our varsity teammates including Madeline Major, Jessie Budde and Jessica August, who have been key contributors this season.

This should be an exciting last week of the girls tennis season at State and we wish all of our Braves sports teams success as well.
