First match was 6-6 tie breaker we fell short 12-14 , second we won 6-4 then super tie breaker we fell short again 11-13. But again these girls never quit or gave up they played their hearts out as you can tell it was a very even match very exciting to watch.

Then in doubles championship Eden Webb and Maci Pollock for second year in row they won doubles championship 6-2 6-1 they were almost flawless throughout the match in the championship they beat the girls from Morgan county who had hadn’t lost a match all season. Eden's serves were unbelievable, returns were strong with great placement and net spikes were little scary for the other team and Maci played with consistent returns that were strong and had great placement also very consistent on serving , I don't think we lost a game on their serves these girls were very much in control super proud of them and of all these girls they worked hard all season to improve and none of them ever gave up no matter who their opponent was and finished strong.”
