VHS girls’ tennis team heads to state

All that remains of the high school girls tennis season is the state tournament, which began in Sioux Falls Thursday and runs through Saturday.

For Vermillion's team perhaps the most interesting thing for which to watch will be how far the No. 1 doubles team of Claire Jones and Valerie Robinson can go through their tough field of opponents.  They have earned, by far, the most team points for the Tanagers in duals this fall, including two more last week in the final matches of the regular season.

The Jones/Robinson duo won their matches against Sioux Falls Lincoln and Sioux Falls Washington opponents.  Both also won their singles matches against Lincoln while Jones also won her singles match in the dual against Washington.

As a team, however, the Tanagers lost to Lincoln, 6-3; to Washington, 7-2, and to Aberdeen Roncalli, 9-0, in the quadrangular played in Sioux Falls.
